When my kids were small, they were big Arthur fans--one of their must-see shows on PBS. As they grew, they discovered Neil Gaiman's work in picture books, children books, comic books, and eventually adult novels--and became big Gaiman fans. It tickled me to learn that Neil Gaiman was recently featured in an Arthur episode, which discusses writing graphic novels and falafel philosophy. Yes, it does work.
