Description
(Winner of the Hugo Award and the Newbery Medal) The lone survivor of his family (murdered by an assassin known as the man Jack), a small toddler is taken in and protected by the ghostly inhabitants of a graveyard in this novel for readers 10 to adult—a worthy successor to Neil Gaiman's Hugo, Nebula, and Bram Stoker Award–winning fantasy Coraline. Raised by spirits and guarded by the enigmatic Silas, neither living nor dead, young "Nobody" Owens masters the ways of Fading and inducing the Fear, learns history from those who lived it, and ventures occasionally into the world of the living, knowing that one day he will confront his family's killer again.

"The Graveyard Book manages the remarkable feat of playing delightful jazz riffs on Kipling's classic Jungle Books. One might call this book a small jewel, but in fact it's much bigger within than it looks from the outside."—Peter S. Beagle

"Like a bite of dark Halloween chocolate, this novel proves rich, bittersweet and very satisfying."—Washington Post

"This is, quite frankly, the best book Neil Gaiman has ever written. How he has managed to combine fascinating, friendly, frightening and fearsome in one fantasy I shall never know, but he has pulled it off magnificently—perfect for Halloween and any other time of the year."—Diana Wynne Jones.
