Read Notebooks Book Of The Week #6: The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

The Graveyard Book by superstar author Neil Gaiman (of Coraline fame) is a Newbery Medal, Carnegie Medal, and Hugo Award winning novel that follows the story of Bod - a strange boy living in the strangest of places... a graveyard. Raised by the cohort of cemetery denizens that he lives among - including ghosts, werewolves, and more spooky undead creatures - Bod is challenged with living and exploring the worlds of both the living and the dead. Creepy and macabre, but perennially warm-hearted, it is truly a special story. Gaiman's ability to create an immersive and engrossing world, and to wield at times sophisticated words and themes in a way that encourages understanding rather than creating a cognitive barrier for younger readers, is unparalleled.
