THE GRAVEYARD BOOK – Neil Gaiman
Bestselling author Neil Gaiman does not disappoint in this Newberry Medal award winning book. It follows the life of ‘Bod’, a baby who is raised in a graveyard by the ghosts and vampire who reside there. Bod’s entire family has been wiped out by the assassin Jack, who is searching for Bod to finish the job. But when you’re raised by a bunch of lively spirits – you’re bound to learn a lesson or two about life and death. A great introduction to Gaiman’s work.
