Run out of town, the three Bones find themselves in the desert and then in mountainous valley, battling rat creatures and the hooded one. Care-free Smiley Bone, who casually points out impending doom; scheming and crafty Phoney Bone, who causes trouble wherever he goes; and our hero, Fone Bone, the straight-man with a proper moral compass that keeps the three of them bound together, even when they are separated. Bones are kind of Caspar-like, in my opinion. I liked crazy grandmother Ben, the shy red dragon, and Fone Bone's swooning over Thorn. ( )

Bone is a fun book to read for early middle schoolers. It has great illustrations and would be a good use in the classroom as an example of a good graphic novel for kiddos. It follows Bone and his journey that he has to take all around the fantasy world he lives in. It has a lot of good and deep illustrations. ( )

I have always liked the Bone book with the 3 cousins, characters are unique and have a fun story line with illustrations that are detailed, but not too detailed. This story creates a fun atmosphere where the reader has the ability to really find their window and not look away. ( )

It’s an all-ages fantasy romp that truly lives up to the description: there’s something here for everyone and all generations.
