The Graveyard Book

by Neil Gaiman Author, Dave McKean Illustrator and Margaret Atwood Foreword

Nobody Owens is a normal boy, except he lives in a sprawling graveyard and has been raised since infancy by ghosts and a guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor the dead. There are adventures in a graveyard for a boy—an ancient Indigo Man, a gateway to the abandoned city of ghouls, and the strange and terrible Sleer. There are dangers, though, too, and if Bod leaves the graveyard, he may fall prey to the man Jack, who has already murdered Bod’s entire family. Illustrated by frequent Gaiman collaborator and acclaimed artist Dave McKean, The Graveyard Book is enriched by beautiful black-and-white line drawings throughout.
