Bone by Jeff Smith Graphic novel, family relationships,
friendship, fantasy, "first crushes"

Bone is an excellent graphic novel about three cousins - Fone Bone, Phoney Bone, and Smiley Bone - who are run out of their town because of Phoney Bone's terrible political antics. Fone Bone helps his cousin, Phoney, escape, but the end up in the middle of a desert with no idea which way to go. Soon they find themselves separated in a mystical world of giant rat creatures, a dragon, and humans. Fone Bone

A compilation of the first three volumes of a widely read series of graphic novels. Something about the art and the sensibility reminds me of the old comic Pogo, though Bone has much more fantasy and adventure mixed in with its quirky characters and wry observations about life than Walt Kelly's classic. I definitely like this series and want to read more of it.

Read this to my son, and we both loved it. Can't recommend it enough.

This is the only even remotely close book I will ever get to a manga book. But this is good stuff!!! Don't worry, I read the series, but I can't find the rest of them in a convenient boxed set.
i <3 this book because its an easy read book yet still a interesting book.
