After the grisly murder of his entire family, a toddler wanders into a graveyard where the ghosts and other supernatural residents agree to raise him as one of their own.
Neil Gaiman's eagerly awaited middle-grade take on Rudyard Kipling's THE JUNGLE BOOK features Nobody, a boy raised by graveyard inhabitants instead of animals. Having escaped his family's murderer and wandered into a graveyard, Bod finds himself in a family of sorts. Humorous, eerie, filled with strange, intriguing characters, Gaiman's story is gripping, and enchanting. With stunning, graphic-novelesque BW artwork, this is the 2009 Newbery Medal winner.
