Title: The Graveyard Book Vol. 1
Author: P. Craig Russell (Adapter), Neil Gaiman (Author)
Genre: Graphic Novel | Middle-Grade | Fantasy > Paranormal
Synopsis: Nobody Owens, known as Bod, is a normal boy.
Really interesting coming-of-age story, with some lovely writing along the way. The story of a young man, raised by ghosts, was moving and suspenseful. Parts of it, particularly the opening chapter, in which Bod’s family is murdered, make it too scary for my kids (10 & 12), but would be fine for older teens.
