After the grisly murder of his entire family, a toddler wanders into a graveyard where the ghosts and other supernatural residents agree to raise him as one of their own.

Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead. There are dangers and adventures in the graveyard for a boy. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, then he will come under attack from the man Jack—who has already killed Bod's family . . .

The Short
The Graveyard is a beautifully written story about a boy living in a rather peculiar place... a graveyard. Being raised by ghosts means that Bod has had a very different upbringing compared to your typical child. He finds himself in many interesting places, some tricky situations, and meeting an array fascinating characters. Absolutely fantastic.
