Format: Paperback
Though this is not my favourite in the series, Volume 5 is perhaps one of the funniest. Here we see Fone and Smiley on a mission to return Bartleby back to the home of the Rat Creatures. On the way they encounter a whole host of cute woodland creatures as well as the enigmatic Roque Jaw (or Rock Jaw as Smiley would have it!), which drives the strroy forward.

The Rat Creatures and Bartleby really stand out for me in this book, adding to the comedy and at times even upstaging the Bone boys. However, I should mention that Volume five is not all about the jokes. There are a few heart pounding scenes with a rabid Kingdok and a claustraphobic trek through an underground cave tunnel to keep you on teh edge of your seats as well.

All in all, another fine piece of work by Jeff Smith. I can't wait to get my hands on the next one!

Both my sons have enjoyed this series of books and they are gradually working their way through them thanks to the great value of book sellers like this. I could not afford to buy them new. The added bonus is that my youngest, aged 9 rereads them over and over again. He really enjoys them. Highly recommended for 8 and 9 year olds. Really quick delivery and well-packaged. Will use these sellers again, thank-you.

Time For a Side Story and Two New Characters 1 Sept. 2011
By Nicola Mansfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Reason for Reading: next in the series.

Time for a change of pace as this book focuses on Fone Bone and Smiley Bone as they go up into the mountains to release the baby rat creature cub that they found in the previous volume. Smiley has become attached to him and named him Bartelby. They meet lots of new & a few old characters and the two stupid rat creatures continue to try and catch them, Roque Ja takes them hostage and the young possums find their trail once again meeting up with a whole group of orphaned animals. Fone and Smiley meet up with every possible bad guy to date on this mini side-expedition bringing lots of excitement and the usual humour. Fone and Smiley are definitely my favourite two characters though I did miss the red dragon's usual cameo.
Interesting issues with action and gags galore! 14 Oct. 2014
By Joseph M. Reninger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Fone Bone and Smiley Bone are on a mission to return a rat creature cub to its mountain home. Smiley has developed a lot of affectionate for the cub, even naming him Bartleby. Fone is more serious about the task--the rat creatures are the enemy and they need to get rid of the cub. They take him to the mountains on the eastern border of the valley where they run into a giant mountain lion who calls himself "Roque Ja." The Bones pronounce it "Rock Jaw," which is a bit annoying to the lion. Rock Jaw tells them they need to choose sides--either the old cow woman (Gran'ma Ben) with the dragons or the rat creatures who serve the "Hooded One," a mysterious figure who really works for the Lord of Locusts. The Bones are unclear which side the lion is on, since he disdains both the dragons and the rat creatures. Rock Jaw claims there is neither good nor evil in the world, only power, which is the only thing worth having. His actions put him on the side of the rats (which to the Bones is the same is being on the side of evil), so they come into conflict pretty quickly. Luckily, the three baby possums from the second issue of Bone come to the rescue. I know that sounds ridiculous but it works amazingly well. Unluckily, Kingdok, leader of the rat creatures, comes to the not-rescue. His fate doesn't work out so well.

This issue has a surprising depth to it. In addition to the theme of whether the rat cub is evil or not just based on being a rat cub, a whole new theme of moral relativity is opened by Rock Jaw. The Bones aren't interested in his position and claim they are on the side of the valley-dwelling humans, a position that Rock Jaw scoffs at. Since the author named this volume "Rock Jaw" and not "Roque Ja," I imagine he definitely sides with the Bones. I enjoyed engaging with deeper issues in this volume.

This is another great book in a great series. Highly recommended!
4.5 stars, a great installment in the series but a bit scattered 7 Jan. 2011
By K. Eckert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the 5th book in the nine book Bone series by Jeff Smith. This is a good installment in the series and introduces some new characters to the series.

This book deals with Fone Bone and Smiley Bone and the rat monster baby that they saved. They encounter a new (large and in charge) character, a giant cougar, named Roque Ja. Of course the Bones take to calling him Rock Jaw which pisses him off. There is much running from bad guys and trying to determine who is one who's side and just how you define good and evil.

To be honest this wasn't my favorite installment in this series. You don't get to see Thorn or Gma at all in this book and I missed them. Also I am unsure what the point of all of the orphaned animals joining the group was since they all left at the end of the story. I am assuming this will all tie together somehow...eventually. But the story didn't seem to make much progress.

There also were a lot of things I really did like though. Rock Jaw is an awesome new character and his discussion of good and evil is a..uh..good one. This is a discussion we had with my son not too long ago when we were trying to explain (to a four year old) how good and evil kind of depends on perspective. I liked that we also learn more about the history behind the valley.

There was a lot of stuff that happened in this installment that was a bit piecemeal. Having not read the rest of the series yet I can only assume it will be significant in future installments. Like in previous installments there are some very funny parts in here and the illustration is spot on like always.

Overall I really enjoyed this Bone installment, but I liked it a little bit less than the previous few. I missed Thorn and didn't understand how some of the small things that happened will relate to the rest of the story. I did really enjoy Rock Jaw though and hope we see him in future installments. I am excited to read the next book, Bone, Vol. 6: Old Man's Cave (v. 6), to see how the story progresses.
bone the awsome 6 Feb. 2015
By Barbara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My favorite part in the book is when Roque ja ran from kingdom and the rat creatures was scared of kingdom so they grasped Fone bone and Smiley bone by the neck and then they told kingdom they wasn't traitors.Then the orphans started attacking then then Fone bone and Smiley bone escaped and them and the orphans ran down the hill and ran into a small cave then kingdom was about to eat them then Roque ja attacked kingdom and killed him.That was my favorite part because it had a lot of action in it and i love action.The authors purpose of writing this book is that Fone bone and Smiley bone was trying to return a rat creature cub to the mountains and they meet the sly mighty moutain lion named rock jaw.also the authors want to show action and adventure and return things and be responsible.The author choose Fone bone and Smiley bone to narrate because they are the main person getting into trouble and talking in the story a lot.I wouldn't change a thing in the story because the book is funny, interesting,and has a lot of action in it.I would describe Fone bone and Smiley bone as adventurous,brave,scardy cat,heroes,heroic and funny because they were scared when kingdom tried to eat them,they were brave when they were facing kingdom and the rat creatures,and they are heroes because they save a lot of people like they saved the orphans when they told them to run and they're adventurous because in the story they was going to the mountains to return a rat creature cub.Corran and Raven would like this book because one of them read the whole seris and one likes aventure and actin books.
