This is the concluding hardcover volume and four-color graphic novel adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book which became a #1 New York Times bestseller as well as winning the Newbery (USA) and Carnegie (UK) Medals.

Nobody Owens, aka Bod, is a teenager who lives in a graveyard and was raised by ghosts. When his guardian Silas is off on a secret quest, Bod reunites with an old friend and decides to venture into the world of the living, but risks mortal danger from Jack, who had killed Bod’s family. Bod is able to evade him by using the paranormal arts he has learned from his ghostly protectors—until he’s followed by Jack and his accomplices back to the cemetery.

Neil Gaiman always had the ability to spin an extraordinary tale, and this particular one is no exception. Though classified as “young adult,” this coming-of-age story will appeal to all age groups. It might have been better had only one illustrator depicted the entire book, but the images remain fairly consistent throughout. Theme-wise, the alternative family idea scores extra points.
