Thrilling, elegant and joyously macabre. You will love it to death * Holly Black * One of the joys of reading Gaiman is how he subverts our expectations of magic, horror, fantasy and the mundane ... A memorable, captivating read * The Times * This brief, dark, savoury adventure deserves to become a modern classic of children's writing * Independent on Sunday * Suspenseful, well-told and touching * The Sunday Times * The best book Neil Gaiman has ever written. How he has managed to combine fascinating, friendly, frightening and fearsome in one fantasy I shall never know, but he has pulled it off magnificently * Diana Wynne Jones * Like a bite of dark Halloween chocolate, this novel proves rich, bittersweet and very satisfying * Washington Post * The outrageous riches of Gaimans imagination. Every page is crowded with invention, both funny and scary * Patrick Ness * I wish my younger self could have had the opportunity to read and reread this wonderful book, and my older self wishes that I had written it * Garth Nix * The Graveyard Book, by turns exciting and witty, sinister and tender, shows Gaiman at the top of his form ... a tale of unforgettable enchantment * New York Times *
