The Graveyard Book

The Graveyard Book By: Neil Gaiman

It all starts with a murder and the boy who gets away. The baby wanders off leaving Jack to wonder where he went.  The boy finds his way to the graveyard, where the ghost of the place vow to keep him safe.  Nobody Owens lives among the dead in the graveyard. He has only the supernatural for friends.  He must learn to live with them and figure out how to be a part of the real world too.  Nobody rarely gets out of the graveyard, but on a few occasions he does, and Jack is still hunting for him.

This was a creepy book aimed at young readers. I really enjoyed it.  I thought that Gaiman did a great job portraying what it would be like to live with ghosts in a graveyard.  It was interesting to finally figure out why his family was murdered at the end of the book.  Great creepy read.

I borrowed this from the public library
ISBN: 978-0-06-053092-1
