“You can’t touch us,” said Bod. “All you can do is scare.”

The twining voices sounded petulant. FEAR IS A WEAPON OF THE SLEER.

From my review:

The Graveyard Book begins with such an eerie opening that I was immediately in raptures over it. Nobody Owens, through both tragic and lucky circumstances, finds himself in the care of the inhabitants of a graveyard. Taken in by a pair of ghosts and watched over by the mysterious Silas, Bod grows up surrounded by the paranormal who do all they can to keep the boy safe within their graveyard. Despite the warning, Bod longs to explore the land of the living and as he grows up he learns that the man Jack, who killed his family, still seeks him.” You can read my review here.
