In The Graveyard Book, Bod the toddler is an adventurous two year old. After Bod’s family gets killed by a man named Jack, Bod runs in to a graveyard and is raised by ghosts. He has a lot of adventures in the graveyard. But, the man Jack is still after Bod. Will the man Jack find Bod or will Bod just live in the graveyard forever?
I like Bod because he is half kid, half ghost. Neil Gaiman does a good job of describing the places that they go to. For example ”You could see the abandoned funeral chapel, iron doors pad locked, ivy on the sides of the sides of the guttering at roof level.”
