In this Newbery Medal-winning novel, 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? And then there are being such as ghouls that aren't really one thing or the other.

The Graveyard Book won the Newbery Medal and the Carnegie Medal and is a Hugo Award Winner for Best Novel.

Smart, spooky children's fantasy
November 7th, 2014
I enjoyed this book - a spooky plot, interesting characters and smart references to everything from The Odyssey to children's nursery rhymes. The entity under the hill is fascinatingly scary and the scenes down there were my favourite in the book. Despite the things I liked about this book, I found Gaiman's storytelling to be a bit clunky, but the plot was enough to convince me.

One of those books that is a very pleasant surprise. The book trapped me from the first chapter and kept me interested by retelling old tales in an exciting and fresh way. Grab a copy and enjoy!
