Author: Jeff Smith

After being chased out of Boneville for his greedy, scheming ways, Phoney Bone is trekking through the unknown desert. Fortunately for him, he doesn’t have to go it alone. His two loyal cousins, Fone Bone and Smiley Bone, are by his side after helping him escape the stampede of angry Boneville citizens. Now the three cousins are lost in the desert with no map, no water and no clue what to do.

The Lonely Trek

Suddenly, a swarm of buzzing locusts surrounds them. They can’t see left from right. Fone Bone takes one dangerous step and plummets over a cliff. He’s thankful to be alive, but soon realizes that his cousins are nowhere to be found. And so begins Fone Bone’s lonely journey through the mountains in search of his cousins. He endures the harsh winter weather, meets hungry rat creatures and encounters a mysterious dragon that seems to be following him.


Thorn

Fone Bone’s luck changes when he meets Thorn, a beautiful human girl who captures his heart. She invites him to stay at her grandma’s cottage during the winter. Come spring, he can search for his cousins in the nearby village of Barrelhaven, where everyone gathers for the Great Cow Race.


Seeking Phoney

Meanwhile, the evil hooded one, ruler of the rat creatures, is seeking “the one who bears the star.” This star-bearer just happens to be Phoney Bone, Fone’s greedy cousin. What did Phoney Bone do to stir up the rat creatures? And why are they seeking him? Will Fone Bone find him and Smiley before the hooded one gets his evil hands on Phoney?


The Bottom Line

Hilarious. Clever. Terrifying. Out from Boneville will keep you entertained from start to finish. It’s no wonder why Bone is one of the bestselling graphic novel series’ on the market. But be warned—if you’re going to read the first Bone book, have the second book handy…because once you start, you won’t want to stop! Check out Bone #2: The Great Cow Race!
