Ghosts, and Goblins, and Serial Killers, Oh My!
By Neil Gaiman, Dave McKean – HarperCollins Pub. (2008) – Hardback – 312 pages – ISBN 0060530928
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.
A well deserved Newberry Award Winner for outstanding Children’s Literature, The Graveyard Book is a pleasure for all ages. I enjoyed it immensely and literally tried to bribe my 5th grade son to read it (he doesn’t read enough). The Graveyard Book was the first book I completed in Carl’s Annual R.I.P. challenge. Read all about it here. Carl’s challenge is the only one I participate in every year and I’m hoping my participation will help to re-initiate me into the world of book blogging after my long and unforgivable lapse. Here is my tentative list for this years challenge:
The Graveyard Book – Neil Gaiman
Will Storr vs. The Supernatural – Will Storr
Ghosts of the McBride House: a true haunting – Cecilia Back
The Bell Witch: An American Haunting – Brent Monahan
Spooky yea? Happy Reading *insert maniacal laughter.*
