The following is a speculative blurb for Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book.
Nobody Owens, Bod to his friends, is your typical boy, thank you very much. Apart from the fact that he was raised by ghosts.
Over his childhood Bod explores the graveyard he lives in and delves into its dangerous depths, entering the world of the ghouls, befriending a young witch and witnessing the living and the dead dance with each other.
But, the dangers of the graveyard are nothing compared to the world beyond the iron gates, as the man Jack is searching for Bod to finish a job that started by murdering Bod’s entire family.
