Nobody Owens, recognized as Bod, could be a normal boy. He will be completely normal if he didn't reside in a graveyard, getting raised by ghosts, with a guardian who belongs to neither the world from the living nor the dead. There are adventures in the graveyard for a boy— an ancient Indigo Man, a gateway to the abandoned city of ghouls, the strange and terrible Sleer. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, he will most probably be in danger from the man Jack— who has currently killed Bod's family.

In The Graveyard Book, Neil Gaiman has created a charming allegory of childhood. (ages 10 and up) -– Heidi Broadhead Whenever the boy strays from his usual play among the headstones, he finds new dangers, learns his limitations and strengths, and acquires the abilities he needs to survive within the confines of the graveyard and in wider world beyond. The sole survivor of the attack--an 18-month-old baby--escapes his crib and his house, and toddles to a nearby graveyard. Quickly recognizing that the baby is orphaned, the graveyard's ghostly residents adopt him, name him Nobody (" Bod ") , and let him to live in their tomb. Despite the reality that the book opens getting a scary scene--a loved ones is stabbed to death by"a man named Jack” --the story quickly moves into a lot more child-friendly storytelling. In serial-like episodes, the story follows Bod's progress as he grows from baby to teen, learning life's lessons amid a cadre of the long-dead, ghouls, witches, intermittent human interlopers. Taking inspiration from Kipling's The Jungle Book, Gaiman describes how the toddler navigates among the headstones, asking a lot of questions and picking up the tricks in the living together with the dead. A pallid, nocturnal guardian named Silas ensures that Bod receives food, books, and anything else he might need from the human planet.
