Neil Gaimon‘s THE GRAVEYARD BOOK took the top honor at this year’s Newbery Award ceremony at the American Library Association‘s national convention in Chicago. Click on Neil’s name above and you can read his reaction to hearing the good news.
The Graveyard Book is the tale of an orphaned boy (Nobody Owens) who is adopted by the ghosts of a British graveyard. He is haunted by the villain (Jack) who murdered his family and wants to do him in as well.
