`A tale of unforgettable enchantment' -- NEW YORK TIMES
They say it takes a village to raise a child. In this case, the village is a graveyard full of ghosts...
Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a graveyard, raised and educated by ghosts. There are dangers and adventures for Bod in the graveyard. But it is in the land of the living that the real danger lurks, for it is there that the man Jack lives ...
A tremendously original blend of fantasy, humour, ghost story and family drama laced with menace and humour from Neil Gaiman, stunningly illustrated by Chris Riddell, who brings the ghouls, ghosts and hero wonderfully to life.
When a baby escapes a murderer intent on killing the entire family, who would have thought he would find safety in a graveyard? In 8 chapters featuring every second year of Bod's life, we trace his upbringing by ghosts from infancy to adolescence. With the murderer still at large, will he survive to be a man?
