From the Back Cover
It Takes a Graveyard to Raise A Child.
Nobody Owens, known as Bod, is a normal boy.
He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a graveyard, wasn't being raised by ghosts, and didn't have a guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor the dead.
There are adventures in the graveyard for a boy--an ancient Indigo Man, a gateway to the abandoned city of ghouls, the strange and terrible Sleer. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, he will be in danger from the man Jack--who has already killed Bod's family.
Each chapter in this adaptation by P. Craig Russell is illustrated by a different luminary from the comic book world, showcasing a variety of styles from a breadth of talent. Together, they bring Neil Gaiman's award-winning, nationally bestselling children's novel The Graveyard Book to new life in this gorgeously illustrated two-volume graphic novel adaptation.
Volume One contains Chapter One through the Interlude, while Volume Two includes Chapter Six through the end.See all Product description

I chose this book (along with volume 2) as I love the different art styles in each chapter.
Whilst I haven't read this story before I have read Neil Gaiman's Coraline and thoroughly enjoyed it. His stories are creepy and spooky but accessible to the younger reader.
The second page is a bit gory though as it depicts a family being murdered. I was worried that my nephew would be too young for this however after doing research online and speaking to his parents it was decided that he would be okay with it.
