Bone: Rose Graphic Novel Review

Author: Jeff Smith
Illustrator: Charles Vess
Series: Bone
Ages: 9-12

If you thought BONE, the graphic novel series by Jeff Smith and illustrator Charles Vess, was over when Book 9, Crown of Horns, came out, well, then, you'd be … only sort of right. On August 1 the prequel to BONE, called ROSE, comes out to tell the story of what happened … before the story.

The Story (Before The Story)

BONE is the story of the three little Bone dudes who get lost in the woods and wind up battling the Lord of the Locusts to help Thorn reclaim her family's kingdom. Their story is over. But how was the kingdom lost? When did the Lord of the Locusts assume power? And how did a princess named Rose become the Grandma Ben we know in BONE?

You’ll get answers to all those burning questions in ROSE.
