Congratulations to Neil Gaiman, whose young adult fantasy novel The Graveyard Book has won the American Library Association's 2009 Newbery Medal.
"A child named Nobody, an assassin, a graveyard and the dead are the perfect combination in this deliciously creepy tale, which is sometimes humorous, sometimes haunting and sometimes surprising", commented the judges.
The book, which has a dedicated website - http://www.thegraveyardbook.co.uk/ - will be reviewed in the Spring 2009 issue of The School Librarian.
