'It's going to take more than a couple of good-hearted souls to raise this child. It will,' said Silas, 'take a graveyard.'

An original adventure story about a boy raised by the resident ghosts, ghouls and spectres of a local graveyard. From the inimitable, bestselling author Neil Gaiman.


When a baby escapes a murderer intent on killing the entire family, who would have thought it would find safety and security in the local graveyard?

Bod has an eccentric childhood learning about life from the dead. But for Bod there is also the danger of the murderer still looking for him - after all, he is the last remaining member of the family.

A stunningly original novel deftly constructed over eight chapters, featuring every second year of Bod's life, from babyhood to adolescence. Will Bod survive to be a man?

'I wish my younger self could have had the opportunity to read and re-read this wonderful book, and my older self wishes that I had written it.' - Garth Nix

You will love it to death' Holly Black, author of The Spiderwick Chronicles 'One of the joys of reading Gaiman is how he subverts our expectations of magic, horror, fantasy and the mundane' The Times 'This brief, dark, savoury adventure deserves to become a modern classic of children's writing' Independent on Sunday 'Suspenseful, well-told and touching' The Sunday Times
