MEDIA REVIEWS
The outrageous riches of Gaiman's imagination. Every page is crowded with invention, both funny and scary * Patrick Ness *
This brief, dark, savoury adventure deserves to become a modern classic of children's writing * Independent on Sunday *
My favourite Gaiman tale, The Graveyard Book's deft combination of darkness & glinting humour will continue to win fans for decades to come * Kiran Millwood Hargrave *
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 *
Endlessly inventive, masterfully told and, like Bod himself, too clever to fit into only one place. This is a book for everyone. You will love it to death * Holly Black *
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 ... In this novel of wonder, Neil Gaiman follows in the footsteps of long-ago storytellers, weaving a tale of unforgettable enchantment * New York 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 *
Suspenseful, well-told and touching * Sunday Times *
`A captivating piece of work, light as fresh grave dirt, haunting as the inscription on a tombstone * Financial Times *
Like a bite of dark Halloween chocolate, this novel proves rich, bittersweet and very satisfying * Washington Post *
