Illustrated by Chris Riddell.
When a baby escapes a murderer intent on killing the entire family, who would have thought it would find safety and security in the local graveyard?
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?

I read this a few years ago and stand by my love for it. The Graveyard Book is a great children's mystery that will keep you on the end of your toes until the last page. It's one of those books you don't forget. - Jaidyn (QBD)
