The Graveyard Book

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman is a book recently recommended to me. Seemed perfect for the Halloween/Fall Season. Written in 2009, it was the winner of the Newbery Medal, New York Times Bestseller, and the 2009 Hugo Award.

It tells the tale of Nobody Owens, a little boy who’s family is killed one night. Nobody “Bod” escapes the house and finds his way to the graveyard. It is there where the ghosts decide to protect him from the killer, The man Jack.

It’s a spooky and charming book that digs into the graveyard, ghosts, and mystery with creepiness and heart.
