'It's going to take more than a couple of good-hearted souls to raise this child. It will,' said Silas, 'take a graveyard.'
An original adventure story about a boy raised by the resident ghosts, ghouls and spectres of a local graveyard. From the inimitable, bestselling author Neil Gaiman.

When a baby escapes a murderer intent on killing the entire family, who would have thought it would find safety and security in the local graveyard? Bod has an eccentric childhood learning about life from the dead. But there is also the danger of the murderer still looking for him - after all, he is the last remaining member of the family.
