Newbery Winner

graveyard-book  I was  very excited yesterday when I read the news that Neil Gaiman’s  The Graveyard Book won the Newbery Award.  I love his books for both adults and children. 

The Graveyard Book is the Story of Nobody  Owens.  He is a normal boy, except for the fact that he lives in the graveyard and all his teachers and family are ghosts .  He has lots of adventures among the gravestones, and a few of them are scary.  However, the scariest thing in Bod’s life is what is outside the graveyard.  Outside the graveyard is Jack.  Jack is the man that killed his family.

Playful, whimsical, a little scary, and sometimes grim; The Graveyard Book is ultimately about growing up and making choices.
