July 2008 Indie Next List
“A delightfully layered story of Nobody Owens, who is raised by the semi-living and the dead in a graveyard. Gaiman uses wit and his depth of knowledge of the arcane to create a safe and nurturing world for the young orphan to grow and thrive in. This will be a joy for all ages!”
— Jane Jacobs, Porter Square Books, Cambridge, MA
Guided by instinct, a baby escapes from the crib in the middle of the night and manage to reach the cemetery near his home. The man who pursues him, knife in glove, just murdered his entire family and is determined to end with him. But the ghosts of the graveyard protect the child and welcome him into their land. Although this time has escaped, the sinister Jack will not rest until fulfilling his mission.
