In this chapter, Howard reflects upon how Gaiman's picture books borrow the grammar of comics in ways that demonstrate his high esteem for the young reader. Howard collapses the critical distinctions between comics and pictures showing how, through their frequent collaboration, Gaiman and McKean use the discourse conventions of comics, where they began, within their children's picture books to straddle a line between lightness and play and darker overtures in a traditionally lighter field of children's picture books. Her conclusions poke holes in the staid critical distinctions in both fields.
