Description

Nobody Owens, known as Bod to his friends, is a normal boy. There isn’t much to set him apart from other boys, except for the fact that after the grisly murder of his entire family he wandered into a graveyard as a toddler; the ghosts and other supernatural beings in the graveyard agreed to raise him as one of their own, despite his corporeal nature. Aside from the graveyard raising, particularly at the direction of a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the dead or the living, Nobody Owens has a completely normal life.

The graveyard is filled with dangers, of course, but also full of adventure that any young child can easily find. But as time passes and the outerworld seems to call his name, can Nobody Owens safely leave the haven of the graveyard that has always been his world? Will he come under attack from the man, Jack, the very same who murdered the rest of Nobody’s family?

Renowned and loved storyteller Neil Gaiman returns to the literary scene with this magical novel for his dedicated audience who so wholeheartedly embraced his New York Times bestselling story Coraline.
