- Full Description
The national bestseller and Newbery Award Winner. Originally released as two bestselling volumes, now bound into one edition. It Takes a Graveyard to Raise a Child.
Nobody Owens, known as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn’t live in a graveyard, wasn’t being raised by ghosts, and didn’t have a guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor the dead. Each chapter in this adaptation by P. Craig Russell is illustrated by a different luminary from the comic book world, showcasing a variety of styles from a breadth of talent.
Together, they bring Neil Gaiman’s award-winning, nationally bestselling novel The Graveyard Book to new life in this gorgeously illustrated single-volume graphic novel adaptation.
There are adventures in the graveyard for a boy, and if Bod leaves, he will be in danger from the man Jack—who has already killed Bod’s family. Despite the danger, Bod wants to leave the graveyard to attend school with the living and find out more about his family’s murder. But by doing so, Bod will put more things at risk than he knows.
A wonderful story in its original prose form. I loved it and recommend it to every kid or adult over the age of 11 or 12. And I feel the same about this superb adaptation into a graphic novel. It's one of those rare special treats that seldom come along, a book that is universally gripping, well-drawn, and one anyone will enjoy.
