BOOK NOTES: 'The Graveyard Book Graphic Novel: Volume 1': Young Adults, Older Readers Will Enjoy This Book
Both books are illustrated by P. Craig Russell and other outstanding graphic novel artists and will be enjoyed by young adults -- and older ones, too.
From the publisher:
It Takes a Graveyard to Raise a Child.
Nobody Owens, known as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a graveyard, being raised by ghosts, with a guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor the dead.
There are adventures in the graveyard for a boy—an ancient Indigo Man, a gateway to the abandoned city of ghouls, the strange and terrible Sleer. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, he will be in danger from the man Jack—who has already killed Bod's family.
Each chapter in this adaptation by P. Craig Russell is illustrated by a different luminary from the comic book world, showcasing a variety of styles from a breadth of talent. Together, they bring Neil Gaiman's award-winning, nationally bestselling novel The Graveyard Book to new life in this gorgeously illustrated two-volume graphic novel adaptation.
Volume One contains Chapter One through the Interlude, while Volume Two includes Chapter Six to the end.
