    The story is beautiful and so are the illustrations.
    I got this as a gift for my niece because my daughter loved these boos so much as a little girl.

    It seemed more geared towards children than the grown-ups who have probably read "Sandman."

    Unlike Jill Thompson's first exploration into the world of the Little Endless, Delirium's Party is geared more for mature audiences, particularly those who have experienced the first installment and are familiar with the characters. In some ways, Thompson borrows a page from J.K. Rowling here in the structure and content of her sequel because, like her young readers, the story has also grown. While still whimsical, fantastic, introspective, and silly, the tone of the book veers more towards the darker side of children's literature. As such, uninitiated children would probably be perplexed or confused by the story itself. Teens who read or were read The Little Endless as kids, along with adults will enjoy Delirium's Party as a solid follow up in what many hope is an ongoing project for Thompson.

    Where The Little Endless follows the misadventures of Barnabas to locate the missing Delirium among each of her six siblings, Delirium's Party finds the lead character discovering that she has never seen her sister Despair ever smile. Immediately, audiences should recognize a key difference in content between the two stories as the once nameless character of Death is fully identified. Although she plays a minor role in the evolving tale, she is nevertheless called upon and described as both "beautiful and calm." Actually, Thompson plays with the Endless' roles through Delirium's interactions and early conversations with them--Destiny who "knew nearly everything" and Desire "who always seem to cut the call short before the Princess could get all the information" stand out the most. In fact, while The Little Endless delights in the simple humor of Barnabas' quest and Delirium's own wildness, Delirium's Party finds comedy in the missteps of the Endless as they attempt to cheer up their sibling.

    This book is what all Graphic Novels should try to be...it just tickles your imagination...not attack or provoke(not that there's anything wrong with that), this story is an excellent "Endless" story drawn by a pure genius, the story gives the impression that it is a child's book, but the adult theme rings true.
    I won't give away any of the story, but Delirium is like the little sister that follows you to wherever you're going and makes you regret that she did...nuff said.
