A man murders a family with a knife, tries to murder a toddler, and threatens a teen girl; creatures are injured while protecting a boy.

Parents need to know that this is mildly creepy with a bit of violence, suspense, and menace, including a man who murders a family and tries to murder a toddler and a teen boy and girl.

On the night Jack murders a family in their beds, their toddler runs out into the night, pursued by the murderer, and finds his way into a cemetery. The ghosts there chase away the murderer and, after much argument, decide to raise the boy. They name him Nobody, Bod for short. As long as Bod stays in the cemetery they can protect him from Jack, who is still searching for him. But a growing boy, even one who is granted the Freedom of the Graveyard, eventually needs contact with the living world -- and it is the world of the living that holds the most danger for Bod.

A brand-new full cast audio edition of a perennial favorite—*The Graveyard Book* by Neil Gaiman, which has sold over one million copies. Special content in this edition includes the story behind The Graveyard Book , written and read by Neil Gaiman.

The Graveyard Book is the winner of the Newbery Medal and the Carnegie Medal (the only novel to ever win both awards), the Hugo Award for Best Novel, the Locus Award for Young Adult Book, and Audiobook of the Year. This full cast audio edition is performed by Neil Gaiman, Derek Jacobi, Robert Madge, Clare Corbett, Miriam Margolyes, Andrew Scott, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Emilia Fox, Reece Shearsmith, Lenny Henry, and an ensemble cast.

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. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, then he will come under attack from the man Jack—who has already killed Bod's family… Magical, terrifying, and filled with breathtaking adventures, The Graveyard Book by beloved master storyteller Neil Gaiman is sure to enthrall listeners of all ages.

T he Graveyard Book begins, as so many children's novels seem to do these days, with a multiple murder. A mysterious character known only as "the man Jack" sneaks into a family home and kills mum, dad and older sister. When he reaches the nursery, however, the family's two-year-old son is missing, having scooted out mischievously into the night. The man Jack, whose silence and hunting skills seem not quite of this world, follows the scent of the boy to a nearby disused graveyard.

Where something strange happens. The community of the dead in the graveyard hide the boy from the killer, and the shady Silas - not quite dead, but not quite alive either - takes the man Jack aside, escorts him calmly out of the graveyard and erases his memory. The boy is adopted by the Victorian ghosts of Mr and Mrs Owens, and Silas appoints himself the boy's guardian, as he's the only one who can leave the graveyard and bring back food. For Silas knows that the man Jack will not rest in his hunt.

We are deep in Neil Gaiman territory here, and it's hard to think of a more delightful and scary place to spend 300 pages. Mrs Owens names the boy Nobody, "Bod" for short, and in each successive chapter Bod is another two years older, growing from infant to young teenager through a series of not always connected adventures.
