Reviewer: Monica Edinger, (New York Times Book Review)

"THE GRAVEYARD BOOK, by turns exciting and witty, sinister and tender, shows Gaiman at the top of his form....[He] follows in the footsteps of long-ago storytellers, weaving a tale of unforgettable enchantment."

"Lucid, evocative prose...and dark fairytale motifs imbue the story with a dreamlike quality. Warmly rendered by the author, Bod's ghostly extended family is lovably anachronistic; their mundane, old-fashioned quirks add cheerful color to a genuinely creepy backdrop."

"It is to Gaiman's credit that many of his readers will wish their own childhoods had played out in the same location."

"Wistful, witty, wise--and creepy. Gaiman's riff on Kipling's Mowgli stories never falters, from the truly spine-tingling opening, in which a toddler accidentally escapes his family's murderer, to the melancholy, life-affirming ending."
