Bod, short for Nobody, Owens has lived in the graveyard for as long as he can remember. Due to a frantic plea from his recently dead (murdered) mother, Bod was given a home in the graveyard, as well as the protection of its ghosts, werewolves, and other residents until he is old enough to protect himself. Growing up in a cemetery leads to many adventures from making friends with visitors to getting kidnapped by ghouls. Most dangerous of all, he attends school briefly with other living, breathing children. Along with this is the ever-present danger lurking outside. Bod wonders how he will manage to survive amongst the living with only the lessons he has learned from the dead.

Ben and Lucy along with their scientist parents live in Florida. Mr. and Mrs. Baxter need to travel to Alaska for research and Ben and Lucy go along. Their first destination is Juneau, the capital of Alaska, where the temperatures can be more mild. (The climate is actually considered a Rain Forest.) They meet up with Will, their wildlife guide. Will takes the family to see sea lions, bears and eagles then they travel to Nome, where it is much more wild. Throughout the book, there is discussion about climate change and lots of facts about the animals and people of the Alaska wilderness are given. If you like Magic Tree House stories, you will probably like this.
