Your thesis statement should be specific about what the theme is.  A good example of a theme for this book is that we all have to grow up sometime, and part of growing up is leaving our childhood behind.

In The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, Bod learns that part of growing up is leaving childhood things behind.

When Bod grows up, he has to accept that this means leaving the safety of the graveyard.
