“In this novel of wonder, Neil Gaiman follows in the footsteps of long-ago storytellers, weaving a tale of unforgettable enchantment.” –New York Times Book Review

“Wistful, witty, and wise-and creepy. . . . Closer in tone to American Gods than to Coraline, but permeated with Bod’s innocence, this needs to be read by anyone who is or has ever been a child.” –Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

In this rich and enchanting reimagining of Rudyard Kipling’s classic adventure The Jungle Book, Neil Gaiman tells the unforgettable story of Nobody Owens, a living, breathing boy who lives in a graveyard, raised by a guardian who belongs neither to the world of the living nor the realm of the dead. Here, among the mausoleums and headstones Bod encounters myriad perils and wonders – including the ancient Indigo Man, a gateway to the abandoned City of Ghouls, and a chance meeting with the terrible Sleer. But real, flesh-and-blood danger waits outside the cemetery walls, as Bod is stalked by the man who murdered the infant Bod’s family. And the killer will not rest until he finds Nobody Owens, and finishes the job he began so many years ago.
