Young Timothy is special-- unknown to him, he has the potential to become the greatest magician the earth has seen. One day he is approached by four strangers who introduce him to the world of magic. One shows him the past, one the present, one the alternate and parallel worlds, and one the possible future. Then he must choose. He must choose between a stable, predictable world and the much more exciting, albeit dangerous, world of magic.

This graphic novel has gorgeous illustrations and a wonderful story, including appearances from some of Neil Gaiman's "other" worlds.
