Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts.
There are dangers and adventures for Bod in the graveyard. But it is in the land of the living that real danger lurks for it is there that the man Jack lives and he has already killed Bod's family.
For good or for evil - and I firmly believe that it is for good - Mrs Owens and her husband have taken this child under their protection. It is going to take more than just a couple of good-hearted souls to rais this child. It will [...] take a graveyard.
