1.I would recommend this book to upper elementary or even early middle school.
2.This book goes through the story for a kid who grew up in a graveyard raised by ghosts. He goes through many struggles and adventures. This curious kid tends to find a lot of trouble with ghouls, caves and a guy named Jack. This is an amazing book that demonstrates friendship and has a tad bit of history thrown in there.
3.I will definitely recommend this book in my classroom. It does involve a little bit of religion but not too much. This book however is a little scary to begin with and quite sad so it may be super rough for some kids. But it is such a good book. ( )

A rather traditional story. Child loses parents, goes through hardships, learns and grows. Imaginative touches from Neil Gaiman,I’m sure many kids could relate to the revenge on the bullies section. Fun overall, felt like I needed a sequel at the end ( )
  cspiwak | Mar 6, 2024 |
author integrates themes like tragedy, grief and anger into a very layered and colorful world that is pure magic. however, the narrative structure does suddenly become... an anthology (???) midway through and just drags. the opening and closing chapters were gd stellar though. ( )

Very cute book. It reminded me of old school fairytales and it was a welcome change in my reading-list. It's a shame the drawings by Dave McKean were not really an addition to the story.
The Graveyard Book has the same Gaiman-atmosphere (and loveable characters!) as some of his most precious short stories, like October in the Chair (from '[b:fragile things|16788|Fragile Things Short Fictions and Wonders|Neil Gaiman|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/413KcOdeB9L._SL75_.jpg|3262727]') ( )

If "Children's Gothic" is not a genre it should be, and this endearing little collection of short stories about a child growing up among crumbling tombstones with supernatural hosts for friends would fit right in. Influenced by the works of Rudyard Kipling and Ray Bradbury, Gaiman weaves just the right amount of whimsy and the macabre into these bedtime tales treating readers to high adventure, subterranean skullduggery, and warm familial ties (both alive and deceased) with a bittersweet ending that begs for a sequel.

Gaiman writes with charm and humor, and again he has a real winner.
tillagd av lampbane | ändraVOYA, Rayna Patton (Jul 24, 2009)
 
Like a bite of dark Halloween chocolate, this novel proves rich, bittersweet and very satisfying.
 
This is fine work, from beginning to end, and the best bedtime story read-aloud material I've encountered in a long time. Can't wait until my daughter's old enough to read this to.
tillagd av lampbane | ändraBoing Boing, Cory Doctorow (Oct 10, 2008)
 
When the chilling moments do come, they are as genuinely frightening as only Gaiman can make them, and redeem any shortcomings.
 
While “The Graveyard Book” will entertain people of all ages, it’s especially a tale for children. Gaiman’s remarkable cemetery is a place that children more than anyone would want to visit. They would certainly want to look for Silas in his chapel, maybe climb down (if they were as brave as Bod) to the oldest burial chamber, or (if they were as reckless) search for the ghoul gate. Children will appreciate Bod’s occasional mistakes and bad manners, and relish his good acts and eventual great ones. The story’s language and humor are sophisticated, but Gaiman respects his readers and trusts them to understand.

Fortinbras Bartleby, ten years old when he had died (of consumption, he had told Bod, who had mistakenly believed for several years that Fortinbras had been eaten by lions or bears, and was extremely disappointed to learn it was merely a disease), now apologized to Bod.
“You're always you, and that doesn't change, and you're always changing, and there's nothing you can do about it.”
Nehemiah Trot said, “Ah, list to me, young Leander, young Hero, young Alexander. If you dare nothing, then when the day is over, nothing is all you will have gained.”
“And for that reason, if for no other, it is vital that the child be raised with as little disruption as possible to the, if you'll forgive the expression, the life of the graveyard.”
"It's like the people who believe they'll be happy if they go and live somewhere else, but who learn it doesn't work that way. Wherever you go, you take yourself with you." p. 104
