The Graveyard Book

The Graveyard Book - o the tiny review, I have been listening to The Grave Yard Book by Neil Gaiman on audio, and I am not an audio kind of girl so it took a while even though it's a great book. He is an amazing writer and I loved his voice. An interesting tale that had my attention (as long as audio can).Ages 9-12, 320 pagesBod 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 timely ghostly teachings-like the ability to Fade. Can a boy raised by ghosts face the wonders and terrors of the worlds of both the living and the dead? And then there are things like ghouls that aren't really one thing or the other. This chilling tale is Neil Gaiman's first full-length novel for middle-grade readers since the internationally bestselling and universally acclaimed Coraline. Like Coraline, this book is sure to enchant and surprise young readers as well as Neil Gaiman's legion of adult fans. (authors site)
