  • The Graveyard Book


    The Graveyard Book is the story of Nobody Owens, a child raised by ghosts after the murder of his family by the mysterious Man Jack. Nobody's childhood and youth loosely parallel the plot of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book. The main bulk of the book follows Nobody on his adventures in the graveyard and in attending locales as he is raised by his parents, the ghostly Owenses, and by his mentor Silas, strongly implied to be a vampire. Nobody solves his parents' murder, finds revenge, and leaves the graveyard.
