Volume Five of New York Times best selling author Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed creation THE SANDMAN collects one of the series’ most beloved storylines.

Take an apartment house, add in a drag queen, a lesbian couple, some talking animals, a talking severed head, a confused heroine and the deadly Cuckoo. Stir vigorously with a hurricane and Morpheus himself and you get this fifth installment of the SANDMAN series. This story stars Barbie, who first makes an appearance in THE DOLL’S HOUSE and now finds herself a princess in a vivid dreamworld.

An all-encompassing storyline told through five chapters.  I loved this story.  I loved Barbie and Wanda and Foxglove and Hazel and Thessaly and all of Barbie’s toys.  The only thing I wanted more of — Dream.  I love him as a character.  I was just upset to not really see him until the last chapter.  Unfortunately I’m all out of volumes for the time being.  I need to get back to the library for the rest.
