When a tiny baby escapes a murderer intent on slaying his entire family, who would have thought he would find safety in the local graveyard? Brought up by the cemetery’s resident ghosts, ghouls and spectres, Bod has an eccentric childhood learning about life from the dead. But the killer is still on his trail, and danger is coming, not from the dead but from the living… Written by Neil Gaiman, author of Coraline, and illustrated by Chris Riddell, this intricate and deliciously creepy Gothic fantasy tells the story of Bod’s life from babyhood to adolescence. Will he survive to be a man?
Winner of the Carnegie Medal 2010 and the ALA Newbery Medal.
