Curious Curio of the Day - The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman


"Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy.
He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard,
being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian
who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead.
There are dangers and adventures in the graveyard for a boy --
an ancient Indigo Man beneath the hill,
a gateway to a desert leading to an abandoned city of ghouls,
the strange and terrible menace of the Sleer.
But if Bod leaves the graveyard,
then he will come under attack from the man Jack --
who has already killed Bod's family... "
