    I LOVE this book . The idea of it is so interesting and I could hardly tell it was based on the jungle book and also knew at the same time. The story doesn’t have a main aim it’s almost a journey of his life and I couldn’t stop reading I read it in two goes and I reccomend it to everyone.

    I really like this book because it is very interesting. I enjoyed reading it because it shows how Bod changes as he grows up. It is definitely one of my favourite books! I would recommend this book to people who like adventures, mysteries and ghosts.

    This book is about a boy called Nobody Owens when his parents get murdered he escapes to a grave yard where he is bought up by ghosts.I really enjoyed this reading this book and it is a similar to the jungle book except ghosts.

    Inspired retelling of the Jungle Book, set in a graveyard. Like some of Gaiman’s other books (for example, the brilliant and terrifying Coraline), the action takes place in a world just beyond the edge of our own – unsettling, disorienting, menacing, but also filled with humour and human longing.

    I really enjoyed this book and its (mostly) hilarious characters. My favourite part is when Bod finds the Sleer. My favourite character is Silas because he’s really adventurous.
