Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“It takes a graveyard to raise a child. My favorite thing about this book was watching Bod grow up in his fine crumbly graveyard with his dead and living friends. The Graveyard Book is another surprising and terrific book from Neil Gaiman.” Audrey Niffenegger, New York Times bestselling author of The Time Traveler’s Wife
The Graveyard Book, by turns exciting and witty, sinister and tender, shows Gaiman at the top of his form. In this novel of wonder, Neil Gaiman follows in the footsteps of long-ago storytellers, weaving a tale of unforgettable enchantment.” New York Times Book Review
“Like a bite of dark Halloween chocolate, this novel proves rich, bittersweet, and very satisfying.”  Washington Post
“Wistful, witty, wise—and creepy. This needs to be read by anyone who is or has ever been a child.”  Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
