A #1 New York Times bestseller, Neil Gaiman s Graveyard Book is a masterpiece! Hailed by Diana Wynne Jones as the best book Neil Gaiman has ever written, and the recipient of 6 starred reviews, The Graveyard Book is a luminous novel about the adventures of a boy raised by the ghosts, werewolves, and other denizens of a graveyard.
Nobody Owens is a normal boy, except that he lives in a sprawling graveyard, and has been raised since infancy by ghosts and a guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor the dead. There are adventures in a graveyard for a boy-an ancient Indigo Man, a gateway to the abandoned city of ghouls, and the strange and terrible Sleer. There are dangers though too, and if Bod leaves the graveyard, he may fall prey to the man Jack, who has already murdered Bod s entire family.
Effortlessly inventive, chilling, and magical, Neil s Graveyard Book is an absolute masterpiece.
Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy.
He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead.
There are dangers and adventures in the graveyard for a boy-an ancient Indigo Man beneath the hill, a gateway to a desert leading to an abandoned city of ghouls, the strange and terrible menace of the Sleer.
But if Bod leaves the graveyard, then he will come under attack from the man Jack—who has already killed Bod's family. . . .
Beloved master storyteller Neil Gaiman returns with a luminous new novel for the audience that embraced his New York Times bestselling modern classic Coraline. Magical, terrifying, and filled with breathtaking adventures, the graveyard book is sure to enthrall readers of all ages.
