First edition. 2009 Newbery Medal Winner! Orphaned at a graveyard, Bod is adopted by two loving ghosts, mentored by a very proper vampire, and accepted as a resident of the graveyard by its supernatural inhabitants, despite his being alive. But the murderer of his parents is out to quiet the only witness – Bod himself! An amazing reimagining of Kipling’s beloved Jungle Book, told with wry humor and spine-tingling wit by the inimitable Neil Gaiman.
