This middle grade fantasy is a starkly realized reimagining of our world where spirits provide almost limitless power to the Magicians who can control them. To this day, this series remains one of my all-time favorites. Not only is the writing itself incredible but its main character is one of the most powerful examples of character growth you will ever find in a middle grade novel.
This series was my Harry Potter when I was a kid. A great story of magic, monsters, and a reluctant hero.
Reminiscent of The Jungle Book, The Graveyard Book follows a young orphan as he navigates the trials and tribulations of any young boy’s life. Fortunately, he has the support of a graveyard full of ghosts to help him over life’s many hurdles. Full of his signature brand of humor, Neil Gaiman has created another timeless masterpiece.
