Staff Reviews

Bod Owens is a most unusual child. Oh, when you see him for the first time, he doesn’t really stand out from other kids except in one specific – almost peculiar- respect: He is the only living resident of a local graveyard.

How did this come to be? Well, you’re going to have to read THE GRAVEYARD BOOK to find out. Who knows? You might find yourself thoroughly enjoying this delightful tale from Neil Gaiman!

— Bud

Fall 2008 Kids' List

“A delightfully layered story of Nobody Owens, who is raised by the semi-living and the dead in a graveyard. Gaiman uses wit and his depth of knowledge of the arcane to create a safe and nurturing world for the young orphan to grow and thrive in. This will be a joy for all ages!”
— Jane Jacobs, Porter Square Books, Cambridge, MA


A New York Times Bestseller

Nobody Owens, known to his friends a Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead. There are dangers and adventures in the graveyard for a boy, but if Bod leaves, then he will come under attack from the man Jack -- who has already killed Bod's family.
