The Graveyard Book

Recently I read a children's book just  for a change of pace. Actually, I read a really good review of it and didn't realize when I put it on hold, that it was a children's book. I was pleasantly surprised when it came in for me. I used to read lots of children's material and it felt good to be reading a kid's novel again. This one is called The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. It's about a little boy whose family is murdered by a mysterious man named 'Jack'. Nobody Owens or Bod for short escapes the murderer and seeks shelter in the graveyard just up the hill from his home. It is then that he is adopted by Mr. and Mrs. Owens, 2 of the ghosts that live in the graveyard. Bod is given the 'freedom of the graveyard' and can do things that any normal human can not. This book was very intriguing if not a bit spooky, but that didn't bother me. Give it a try! It's wonderful to read children's books as an adult.
