This book is called Bone. It is about three "Bones" (small white creatures) named Fone Bone, phony bone, and Smiley Bone. Phony bone was a very rich Bone who tried to run for Mayor but was chased out of town with his 2 cousins because of how selfish he was. Fone is a nice bone with not manny skills to be honest. Smiley, well his name tells it all. While walking in the desert for day, a swarm of locus insects separate them. Fone meets a bug named ned, who takes him to the forest. Imedeatly after it snows, so he must survive the winter. Eventually he finds a young girl named Thorn who takes him to her house. Meanwhile Phony meets Thorns tough, cow-racing grandma and meet back up with Fone at the house. Thorn tells the bones that there is a big event at the town that involves a lot of betting in a while, thus leading the cousins to believe that Smiley might be there. They had to do a bunch of chores to prepare, but Phony being lazy leaves early and meets Smiley at pub. After Thorns house is attacked by Rat-Monsters they run to the pub and meet Smiley and Phony, and we are left with a cliffhanger of the king of the rat monsters talking about how he will kill Phony.
I think that the moral of this story is to be just and right. I think this because Fone tells thorn that the reason that they got into this mess, was because Phony gave the whole town bad plum tarts and was greedy and mean. That means that if he was better they wouldn't have been chased out. Another interpretation could be to stick together. The Locus swarm separated them so they were alone and defenseless. I give this book a 3 because I feel like we only get background info on the supporting characters. Thorn gets a flashback scene, and half the book Phony is talked about, but our hero Fone, not much is given. ( )

This is a story about three cousins who lose their way when on an adventure in a place they have never been before. Eager to find each other, they encounter monsters and other friends along the way. This is a wonderful story for younger children who may be interested in reading a graphic novel that is different from most. ( )

Summary: In the first Bone book, the Bone cousins have been run out of Boneville. AS the three cousins travel together they accidentally get separated in a lost uncharted desert. Which then leads them on a adventure to find one another, though it wasn't going to be easy with all the monsters after them and soon to be war.
Review: I live there series of Bone. Its a great graphic book to read. It has vibrant color, humor and a sense of good verses evil. It can be used for students who get bored easily.
