graveyardI was certain that The Graveyard Book deserved the Newbery before I even read it because I’ve read other things by Neil Gaiman and I think he’s wonderful.  Now that I am reading and thoroughly enjoying it, the smile on my face just gets wider and wider.  Read, if you will, this snippet from page 70:

“Name the different kinds of people,” said Miss Lupescu.  “Now.”

Bod thought for a moment.  “The living,” he said.  “Er.  The dead.”  He stopped.  Then, “…Cats?” he offered, uncertainly.

 Can there be any doubt as the the excellence of this book?
