Here's a fantastic ghost adventure story, laced with menace and humour.
When a baby escapes a murderer intent on killing the entire family, who would have thought it would find safety and security in the local graveyard?
Brought up by the resident ghosts, ghouls and spectres, Bod has an eccentric childhood learning about life from the dead. But for Bod there is also the danger of the murderer still looking for him - after all, he is the last remaining member of the family.
A stunningly original novel deftly constructed over eight chapters, featuring every second year of Bod's life, from babyhood to adolescence. Will Bod survive to be a man?

A great read ... I didn't want it to end.
I love this story. The narrator is absolutely perfect for the story, and the main character "Bod" is adorable. It's easy listening and a good story for the whole family.
This is my first Neil Gaiman book and I want more.
BTW I am definitely not a kid or young person and I loved it!
The graveyard book
Two thumbs up. It's wonderful. I'm 47 and bought this for myself.
Love all Neil Gaiman's stories. This one is extra fabulous because it's read by the author. Highly recommend it!
