A graveyard is the last place one would find a wandering baby, at least that's what the ghosts would think. So when a toddler wanders into one such haunted graveyard, the ghosts have no idea what to do with him. Especially since his parents have been brutally murdered. Their confusion is put to rest as the Lady on the Grey appears and tells them they should adopt him. Thus begins the story of Nobody Owens, adopted by Mr. and Mrs. Owens, ghosts proud and eerie. Cared for by the graveyard's caretaker Silas, who probably is a Vampire, Nobody grows up on the graveyard, and believes it to be his entire world until he happens upon a little girl called Scarlett Perkins. The story of Nobody's adventures, and his eventual meeting with the man who murdered his parents is a story to warm the dead, and perhaps light up a graveyard.
