Publisher Description

Neil Gaiman's perennial favorite, The Graveyard Book, has sold more than one million copies and is the only novel to win both the Newbery Medal and the Carnegie Medal. 

Bod is an unusual boy who inhabits an unusual place—he's the only living resident of a graveyard. Raised from infancy by the ghosts, werewolves, and other cemetery denizens, Bod has learned the antiquated customs of his guardians' time as well as their ghostly teachings—such as the ability to Fade so mere mortals cannot see him.

Can a boy raised by ghosts face the wonders and terrors of the worlds of both the living and the dead?

The Graveyard Book is the winner of the Newbery Medal, the Carnegie Medal, the Hugo Award for best novel, the Locus Award for Young Adult novel, the American Bookseller Association’s “Best Indie Young Adult Buzz Book,” a Horn Book Honor, and Audio Book of the Year. Don't miss this modern classic—whether shared as a read-aloud or read independently, it's sure to appeal to readers ages 8 and up.

Not just for kids!

I heard this author interviewed on NPR and was enticed to read the book. I am a former high school literature teacher and couldn't help but to read this on a more intelligent level. The characters are perfectly developed, the themes are sublime, and the end is emotionally surprising. It is captivating! What an imagination the author has! I wish there was a sequel.

Amazing

This book started it all for me, stumbled across it one day and ended up buying all of Gaimans books. He is a phenomenal story teller and his books are definitely worth the money. One of my favorite books.

Great for all ages!

My daughter picked this book up at a school book fair, and she didn't get through it, but I found it on the shelf and thought it was interesting. Inside I found what has become one of my favorite stories of all time. I love this book. There are some great lessons to be found within the pages of this story. There are some wonderful moments. Some heartfelt. Some scary. Some just pure entertaining. A great great for people of any age!
