The Graveyard Book


by Neil Gaiman

Mr. Owens and Mrs. Owens

Character Analysis

Mr. and Mrs. Owens are Bod’s graveyard parents. Including the time they’ve been in the graveyard, they’ve been married 250 years. Their one regret is that they never had kids. Good thing Bod wandered into the graveyard so they could become parents. They seem to be very nice people and pretty good parents, but they aren’t involved in any of Bod’s adventures.
