Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Winner of the Newbery Medal. When a baby escapes a murderer intent on killing his entire family, who would have thought it would find safety and security in the local graveyard? Brought up by the resident ghosts, ghouls and spectres, Bod has an eccentric childhood learning about life from the dead. But for Bod there is also the danger of the murderer still looking for him - after all, he is the last remaining member of the family. A stunningly original novel deftly constructed over eight chapters, featuring every second year of Bod's life, from babyhood to adolescence. Will Bod survive to be a man?

Review:
'The highly skilled craftsmanship of Neil Gaiman's expertly joined plotting is constantly fascinating. With The Graveyard Book he appears to have exceeded even his own exacting standards, seeming to revel in creating the improbable and layering on impossible convolutions. The impossible he deals with through mind-twistingly clever links and attention to the most minute of details, the improbable becomes totally convincing through the sheer brilliance of the writing' The School Librarian

Book Description: Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: HarperCollins US | Ausgezeichnet mit der John Newbery Medal 2009 und dem Hugo Award 2009 | A No 1 New York Times bestseller, Neil Gaimans Graveyard Book is a masterpiece! Hailed by Diana Wynne Jones as "the best book Neil Gaiman has ever written," and the recipient of 6 starred reviews, The Graveyard Book is a luminous novel about the adventures of a boy raised by the ghosts, werewolves, and other denizens of a graveyard. | Nobody Owens is a normal boy, except that he lives in a sprawling graveyard, and has been raised since infancy by ghosts and a guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor the dead. There are adventures in a graveyard for a boy-an ancient Indigo Man, a gateway to the abandoned city of ghouls, and the strange and terrible Sleer. There are dangers though too, and if Bod leaves the graveyard, he may fall prey to the man Jack, who has already murdered Bods entire family. Effortlessly inventive, chilling, and magical, Neils Graveyard Book is an absolute masterpiece. | Format: Hardback | Language/Sprache: english | 400 gr | 320 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9780060530921
