I was introduced to Neil Gaiman only recently, and I must say I haven't delved into his work all that much, save for his children's books The Wolves in the Walls and The Day I Swapped My Dad for 2 Goldfish, both illustrated by his longtime collaborator Dave McKean. Comic Book Resources recently spoke with both men about the upcoming Mirrormask, which McKean is directing. The two reveal a few things about the making of the movie, but what I found most interesting was Gaiman's assessment that children are better able to deal with the concept of good and evil than adults because they see the two concepts as very separate. This, according to Gaiman, is why kids can accept things like the witch in Hansel and Gretel being cooked alive. I think it also explains why Roald Dahl, as well as contemporary authors like Gaiman and Lemony Snicket, are so alluring to younger readers.
