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?

The Graveyard Book is the winner of the Newbery Medal, the Carnegie Medal, the Hugo Award for best novel, the Locus Award for Young Adult novel, the American Bookseller Association’s “Best Indie Young Adult Buzz Book,” a Horn Book Honor, and Audio Book of the Year. Don't miss this modern classic—whether shared as a read-aloud or read independently, it's sure to appeal to readers ages 8 and up.

    As great as the audio book
  • A great coming of age tale for all

    It’s a book that leaves you with wisps and wonders, and will haunt you for a good rest of your life, and after. I wish I had read it as a young teen, but am happy I read it at a good mid twenty all the same. I also wish I had better words for it, but it’s much more of an experience than I can describe. Nob is a bit of all of us, and none of us at all. It’s captures the fleeting but foreverness of life in such a beautiful way. As was said deep in these pages, I can come back, but it will be a place, not a home.

    My daughter picked this book up at a school book fair, and she didn't get through it, but I found it on the shelf and thought it was interesting. Inside I found what has become one of my favorite stories of all time. I love this book. There are some great lessons to be found within the pages of this story. There are some wonderful moments. Some heartfelt. Some scary. Some just pure entertaining. A great great for people of any age!
