When a baby escapes a murderer intent on killing the entire family, who would have thought it would find safety and security in the local graveyard?
Brought up by the resident ghosts, ghouls and spectres, Bod has an eccentric childhood learning about life from the dead. But for Bod there is also the danger of the murderer still looking for him — after all, he is the last remaining member of the family.
A stunningly original novel deftly constructed over eight chapters, featuring every second year of Bod's life, from babyhood to adolescence. Will Bod survive to be a man?

Quotes

    “Sleep my little babby-oh
    Sleep until you waken
    When you wake you’ll see the world
    If I’m not mistaken…”
    “You’re not,” whispered Bod. “And I shall.”
    “Kiss a lover
    Dance a measure,
    Find your name
    And buried treasure…”
    Then the last lines of the song came back to Mistress Owens, and she sang them to her son.
    “Face your life
    Its pain, its pleasure,
    Leave no path untaken”

    “People want to forget the impossible. It makes their world safer.”

    Fear is contagious. You can catch it. Sometimes all it takes is for someone to say that they’re scared for the fear to become real.
