One of Barr's six favorite books, as told to The Week magazine:
The Graveyard Book by Neil GaimanRead about another book on the list.
In growing up, too many of us leave behind our love of the drama, fantasy, romance, and mystery that we devoured as kids. Gaiman gives all that back to us. For that I adore him. This tale of a boy orphaned by murderers and raised by graveyard ghosts is magic.
