    Love this idea. What a fun thing to do – three perspectives and three postive reviews. Of course, it IS Mr. Gaiman, right? He’s always superb.

    It’s so cool that you and your kids read and reviewed the same book! I don’t think me and my two kids could ever agree on the same one and our discussions would not be as articulate as Scruffy’s and Petunia’s. I especially liked that Scruffy was searching his brain for a German word to sum up what he was trying to say (did he ever discover it?) and the sentence that stuck in Petunia’s mind ever since she read it all those years ago.

    This is a book I’ve been meaning to read and now having read these awesome reviews, I may have to bump it higher on the TBR list.

      I think you’ll like it, Tami! Thanks for the positive energy, and no, I’m not sure young Scruffy ever came up with the word he was looking for.

    Wonderful review. I love the way you got three different takes from different ages. The book sounds very interesting. I may have to check that out. Thanks for sharing, Liv. Thank you for hosting her, Fabio.

    Isn’t it great to be able to not only read, but to discuss books with our kids. What a great project. I love your kid’s voices, I think they take after their mom and you may have a couple writers there, Liv!

      They’re such good kids, Sharon, and I do hope they end up doing some writing as they get older. Thanks for the compliment!

    Neil Gaiman is one of my most favorite writers. I’ve read almost all of his books. The Graveyard is such an amazing story. And, as you said, Liv, the author’s use of the third person omniscient POV is brilliant for this story.

      Thanks Angela! I love Mr. Gaiman – it wasn’t hard at all to get everyone behind this project.

    Great reviews! (from all three of you!) I really admire The Graveyard Book and its simplicity/complexity; wonderfully told and engaging. As a family, we listened to the audio book on a long car trip. Everyone loved it; my 7-year-old son, my teenage daughter, and my husband and I. (I think even our dogs listened in.) 🙂

    Thanks Martina! We’ve never done the audio book thing. Will have to try it 😉
