Read in August, 2011

"The Great Cow Race" is the continuation of the Bone saga after the events of the first trade paperback (TPB), "Out from Boneville." The story does pick up the pace here and get more interesting. The humor was a lot more appealing to me (less ridiculously goofy and more genuinely funny), and I found myself tearing through the entire TPB in about an hour without stopping. Although I'd felt ambivalent about the Bone series before reading this TPB, to me it was the turning point to solidify my interest in the fate of the characters and the outcome certain situations (such as Phoney Bone's schemes and the relationship of the dragon and rat creatures to Thorn and Grandma Ben). Recommended for mid-elementary school students and up.
