Hi, new here...i've been a huge fan of neil's for a long time now and as of late i have convinced my school book group to read the graveyard book. My librarian said she would be happy to order the 10-15 copies we need if she could find them in paperback...well, i cant seem to find any that are not hardcover. Can anyone help me out? Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately, the Graveyard Book is still only in Hardcover. (Amazon lists an 'international edition' in paperback, but it is not widely available, hard to get 10-15 copies of, and not going to be cheaper than the hardcover) There is a paperback edition in Britain, but the cost of shipping it over may outweigh any price break compared to the hardcover

Of course, if you don't mind listening to the story, Neil read the entire book live and put it on his website for free...

Unless this is a specific reading task, i'd highly recommend the link GMZoe has posted.

Listening to Neil read his own book was a great pleasure for me.

This also adds the dimension that it could be used in discussions about voices/accents, and even science discussions of using the face to display emotion!

"Indeed m'lud. She's marshalled all the haggle-dans. Missy-twigs and vale-nymphs from Claypole Woods. Apparently she intends to tear this house down and dance on the ruins."�
