Graveyard Book

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
Unabridged 7 CDs

Great story about a boy who was raised in a graveyard by the ghosts that are buried there. The boy's family was murdered when he was a baby and he escaped by toddling out of the house at just the right time. His real parents were buried elsewhere, but the residents of the graveyard he wondered into keep him safe from the man who still hunts for him. Listed for ages 9 to 12, I wonder about the violence at the beginning of the story, but overall, a good listen. Neil Gaiman does the reading and he had a good voice for it.
