Publisher's Summary

Sell the cemetery? Over their dead bodies.... Not many people can see the dead (and not many would want to). Twelve-year-old Johnny Maxwell can. And he's got bad news for them: the council want to sell the cemetery as a building site. But the dead aren't going to take it lying down... especially since it's Halloween tomorrow.
Besides, they're beginning to find that life is a lot more fun than it was when they were... well... alive. Particularly if they break a few rules.

Perfectly Pratchett

What was one of the most memorable moments of Johnny and the Dead?

When the dead realized they could go anywhere instead of waiting for Judgement Day.

Any additional comments?

Heart, humor, social commentary and compelling characters and stories - exactly what I expect from Sir Terry.

Great Read

A review requires 20 words, but I was up late finishing this book and do not remember all my words. I felt like I should say something nice because it was a good book and I've read so many Terry Pratchett books and the narrator did a good job too, all of which I already said in a much shorter version at the top of this, is that 20 words yet?
