Staff Reviews


If Walt Disney and Walt Kelly had teamed up to adapt Lord of the Rings,
it might look a little something like Jeff Smith’s Bone. What starts as
a simple and humorous tale about the foibles of the three Bone cousins
quickly blossoms into an epic tale of good versus evil, with the fate of
the idyllic Valley hanging in the balance. This is a great all ages
story that features gorgeous black and white art, and a grand, thrilling
narrative that will appeal to both kids and adults. If you like
fantasy, this is a must-read.
