The Graveyard Book (2008) by Neil Gaiman

A charming children’s fantasy novel by Neil Gaiman. I’m not really a fan of children’s lit, so I never really got into the story as much as its fans do, but I did like the illustrations and some of Gaiman’s more creative ideas. Gaiman is also really skilled at writing to different audiences; this doesn’t feel like an accomplished author of “adult’s” fantasy trying his hand at a children’s book, but a legitimately well-written children’s book in its own right. The creativity and charm of the story is enough to satisfy those beyond that age though.

I give it three tombstones, and a guarded barrow.
