“A delightfully layered story of Nobody Owens, who is raised by the semi-living and the dead in a graveyard. Gaiman uses wit and his depth of knowledge of the arcane to create a safe and nurturing world for the young orphan to grow and thrive in. This will be a joy for all ages!”
— Jane Jacobs, Porter Square Books, Cambridge, MA

Description


It takes a graveyard to raise a child.

Nobody Owens, known as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be "completely" normal if he didn't live in a graveyard, being raised by ghosts, with a guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor the dead. There are adventures in the graveyard for a boy--an ancient Indigo Man, a gateway to the abandoned city of ghouls, the strange and terrible Sleer. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, he will be in danger from the man Jack--who has already killed Bod's family.
