My son loved the book as well, but I found that I enjoyed it equally as much! Nichole Wulf I originally picked this for my year old son and me during a summer road trip. I ended up listening to it by myself. Loved it!
Super engaging and a quirky plot. Would love to read and or listen to other books by Neil Gaiman. A quick read that clears the mind. Gives some scares and some laughs. I liked it.

Bod and Scarlett escape to the graveyard where Bod is able to defeat each Jack separately, except for Jack Frost. Jack Frost takes Scarlett captive in the chamber of the Sleer but is then tricked by Bod into claiming himself as the Sleer's master. The Sleer engulfs Jack Frost in an "embrace", and they disappear into the wall, presumably "protecting him from the world", forever.
Silas returns, and it is revealed that he and Miss Lupescu are members of the Honour Guard, devoted to protecting "the borders between things". With two other supernatural beings the Ifrit Haroun and the winged mummy Kandar , they have fought the Jacks of All Trades throughout the novel explaining earlier references made by the Jacks to losses in various cities around the world. Though they succeed in destroying the society, Miss Lupescu is killed in battle, to Silas and Bod's great sorrow.
Scarlett is shocked and appalled by the events of the night and Bod's questionable actions in the course of defeating Jack Frost though it was the Sleer who killed Jack Frost, Bod knew it would happen and so arranged the events.
Silas suggests the best course is to remove most of her memories of Bod and what happened that night. Bod disagrees with Silas, but Scarlett ends up with her memories taken anyway.
Silas uses his power of suggestion to convince Scarlett and her mother to return to Glasgow. In the final chapter of the book, Bod is "about 15" and is slowly losing the Freedom of the Graveyard and even his ability to see ghosts.
At the end of the book, Silas gives Bod some money and a passport with the name of Nobody Owens. Bod says his good-byes to his ghostly family and friends and leaves the graveyard to embark on a new life.
