The 10th anniversary edition of The Graveyard Book includes a foreword by Margaret Atwood as well as sketches from the illustrator, handwritten drafts, and Neil Gaiman's Newbery acceptance speech.
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, being raised by ghosts, with a guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor the dead. There are adventures in the graveyard for a boy--an ancient Indigo Man, a gateway to the abandoned city of ghouls, the strange and terrible Sleer. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, he will be in danger from the man Jack--who has already killed Bod's family.
The Graveyard Book, a modern classic, is the only work ever to win both the Newbery (US) and Carnegie (UK) medals.

It's a wonderful story. It's great, amazing, interesting, and I can't get enough of this book. Definitely my favorite book from Neil Gaiman
Just give me any Neil Gaiman's book and I'll definetely love all of them. I read this book twice, one on the paperback and another one for audiobook. You all should try to listen to the audiobook too. Neil Gaiman read it himself and you can find for free at youtube. That's very fun experience.
Nobody Owens is really a good and brave kid. Almost all of Neil Gaiman's character are brave despite of any circumstances. This book have a fun, funny, and amusing story.
