This new hardcover edition of the classic tale of The Endless is a companion piece to the new DELIRIUM’S PARTY: A LITTLE ENDLESS STORYBOOK.
The story begins once upon a time, when Little Delirium was lost. Her protector and puppy Barnabas searched the waking world for his tiny princess to no avail. Now, Barnabas must travel to the strange realms of each of The Endless to see if Delirium’s siblings have seen their missing sister. Cameos by The Sandman, Desire and the rest of the Endless family make this a must-have for any Sandman enthusiast.

Jill Thompson has worked widely throughout the comic industry. She has pencilled issues of The Invisibles, Sandman and Wonder Woman, to name but a few. She has also written an acclaimed series called Scary Godmother.From School Library Journal:
Grade 10 Up–Delirium, the youngest of the Endless family, and her brothers and sisters are encountered as adults in Neil Gaiman's graphic novel series The Sandman (DC Comics). Thompson, Gaiman's collaborator, has created a world of the Endless as children. In this story, Delirium's small dog is in charge of keeping her safe, because she is easily distracted. When he goes off into the woods to see a man about a tree, she goes off in search of him. When he returns he cannot find her so he visits each of her siblings, including Destiny and Death (two major characters in Sandman), to try to find her. Each one gives him a charm (a symbol of their adult character), but it is not clear how they will help him. It is difficult to determine the intended audience, although the book itself indicates it is meant for mature audiences. The writing is uneven, and the humor is very adult, but the plot is simple and too predictable for older readers. Not a true graphic novel, but an illustrated story, the full-page manga-style art seems aimed at younger children. Sandman fans are the most likely audience, and they are sure to find these illustrations disappointing and substandard.–Ronnie Gordon, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
