Gaiman, Neil -- The Graveyard Book

A boy named Nobody is adopted by ghosts. Charming and light. Gaiman is pastiching many familiar stories here -- sometimes from chapter to chapter, which makes the book feel more uneven than it could have been -- but the allusions don't overpower the story. Put this with Nation and you have an excellent year for young fantasy readers.
