Absolutely fantastic read! Read this book in less than two days and enjoyed every minute of it. Beautifully illustrated!

Nobody Owens was only one when his parents and sister were murdered by a man named Jack. Nobody escaped from his house and found his way to a graveyard where the ghosts of Mr. and Mrs. Owens decided to take him in as their own. Throughout his time in the graveyard Bod was taught how to Fade, induce Fear, Dreamwalk, and talk about the many kinds of people in the world. Bod along with his guardian Silas uncover the mystery behind why his family was murdered and seek revenge on the man that killed them. 

Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite authors of all time and I cannot wait to dive into the next book that I have by him!
