The Graveyard Book

By Neil Gaiman, Dave McKean (Illustrator)

A delicious mix of murder, fantasy, humor, and human longing, the tale of No body Owens is told in magical, haunting prose. A child marked for death by an ancient league of assassins escapes into an abandoned graveyard, where he is reared and protected by its spirit denizens.
