The Graveyard Book

by Neil Gaiman

‘It’s going to take more than a couple of good-hearted souls to raise this child. It will,’ said Silas, ‘take a graveyard.’

When a baby escapes a murderer intent on killing the entire family, who would have thought it would find safety and security in the local graveyard?

Bod has an eccentric childhood learning about life from the dead. But for Bod there is also the danger of the murderer still looking for him – after all, he is the last remaining member of the family.

A stunningly original novel deftly constructed over eight chapters, featuring every second year of Bod’s life, from babyhood to adolescence. Will Bod survive to be a man?
