Pleasant Hill Reads

Leading up to Halloween, we're inviting everyone in town to share something eerie for all ages by master storyteller Neil Gaiman.

It's a one city, one author event with 4 books to choose from:

The Wolves in the Walls Lucy is sure there are wolves living in the walls of her house, although others in her family disagree, and when the wolves come out, the adventure begins. (Recommended for grades 2-4

The Graveyard Book  An orphaned boy is raised by ghosts and other denizens of the graveyard in this Newbery Award-winning reimagining of the Jungle Book. (Recommended for grades 4-8)

Coraline  Looking for excitement, Coraline ventures through a mysterious door into a world that is similar, yet disturbingly different from her own, where she must challenge a gruesome entity in order to save herself and her family. (Recommended for grades 5 and up)

Neverwhere  A darkly whimsical tale named one of NPR best fantasy books, a man stops to help a girl bleeding on a London sidewalk and finds himself pulled into a bizarre subterranean city beneath the city. (Recommended for adults and teens)
