Creepy and Cool

So I was introduced to the creepy and cool world of Neil Gaiman with Coraline. The comic book king has a knack from creating very real characters is some strange situations. His newest book The Graveyard Book features a young boy Owen who has grown up, you've got it, in a graveyard raised by ghosts.

The audio book of Coraline was spectacular, with eery music and Mister Gaiman reading. The Tigard Library has 4 copies of The Graveyard Book on order. If you can't wait or if you just want a sneak peak, you can listen to Neil Gaiman reading you his book online! Every day of his 9-city tour he's been reading one chapter and then posting it online. So far he's on the beginning of Chapter 7. I'm not sure how long this will be available...so go have a listen!
