The Graveyard book

The Graveyard Book is one of those books that pops up, totally unexpected, and completely takes your breath away. Neil Gaimen, the man who brought you such goodies as The Sandman Series, American Gods, Neverwhere and Coraline, offers another children's book with errie twist.

Neil Gaimen was always fascinated with The Jungle Book, the idea of being raised by animals and living among them. This sparked his imagination into a question, "What would happen if a little boy were raised by ghosts?"

This book, which has eight chapters, is read by Gaimen himself for free. You can find the videos of him reading it on a book tour at

If you have an hour to kill, this Halloween, be sure to press play and listen to a truly fantastic, charming story.
