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.

Description


Jeff Smith's New York Times and USA Today bestselling, award-winning BONE books are one of the most popular graphic novel series of all time!

Fone Bone and Smiley Bone strike out into the wilderness to return a lost Rat Creature cub to the mountains. It doesn't take long before they run smack into Rock Jaw, a sly and mighty mountain lion with a none-too-friendly disposition. Life gets even more complicated when they befriend a group of baby animals who have been orphaned by Rat Creature attacks. Everything comes to a head in an earth-shattering clash between Rock Jaw and Kingdok, the leader of the Rat Creatures.
