Halloween Books Part Four: The Graveyard Book
This is a kids book and its totally unsettling and wonderful. That's a combination I've only seen Mr. Gaiman pull off really well. This book is magic and it gets deeper and more shadowy right up to the end.
The structure is a bit like the Jungle Book, the part about Mowgli but instead of being raised by jungle animals the hero of this story is raised by ghosts and monsters.
A great Halloween read.
