If you're reading this review then I'm guessing that you've never read a 'Bone' book before. Well, I can safely say that you don't know what you're missing.

Even though I'm a guy of a certain age (probably too old to be reading comic books, that's for sure!) I absolutely loved this book. Unlike a lot of graphic novels there are no super heroes, it's not dark and it's not set in some grotty city. This is much more Walt Disney than Frank Miller and make no mistake. However, don't let that lull you into a false sense of security. The characters are well defined and endearing, the plot is wacky and captivating and the comedy...I actually laughed out loud on several occasions. This is the start of an epic that will have you gripped until the end.

So, if you're a fan of fantasy but want to try something a little different then this is definitely what you're after. Buy it now!

This series has taken on a very slow pace lately, but the first few issues are positively magical. I know its been said before, but Bone does pay a very strong tribute to POGO; Fone Bone possesses character traits similar to Pogo's and there is at least a little bit of Albert the gator in Smiley Bone. Phone Bone, however, doesn't seem to resemble anyone from POGO except, perhaps, Seminole Same (actually Phone Bone bears an uncanny resemblance to Bill Watterson's Calvin). Anyway, this is good stuff. I would say the only thing missing is color, but the absence of it makes the artwork more savory somehow.

Read this as it appeared on a Top 50 Children's Book list, and I like to try everything out.

Intrigued as I don't read many graphic novels. And I know nothing about them. These are my thoughts as an adult library assistant who reads children's books.

I didn't find it particularly entertaining. It wasn't funny, I didn't like the characters. I'm not interested in reading further as it's not a genre I really like, but I did quite like the style of drawing and the look of the Bones. This might be one book that you need to read at the right age to appreciate.

Sorry if you're a fan - but we all like different things. I'll still recommend this to young readers in my library, and I see readers enjoying them.

Format: Paperback
This is a whimsical and fantastic adventure set in an imaginary land. It has the feel of an early animation crossed with a classic fairy-tale. There is a childlike quality to it but it isn't necessarily aimed at children.

We follow Fony Bone, his cousins, and the friends he makes along the way as they try and get out of the strange land they have become lost in. All sorts of different creatures pop up and join in from dragons to tiny bugs. If you crossed the Wizard of OZ with the Dungeons and Dragons animated series you get an idea of the type of story being told.

The art is great, being purely black and white line drawings reminiscent of Usagi Yojimbo. It has the feel of a golden age animated short. The Bone characters are anthropomorphic with blobby bodies, big noses and quirky eyes but capable of great exaggerated expressions. It is quite a shock when traditional human figures are introduced. A lot of the story is told visually and a great deal of emotion is imparted by these clay-like figures. The lettering is also suitably bombastic too.

The tale is simple enough with no forced complexity or unnecessary convolutions. It has a straightforward timeline and wont tax you as a reader. What it has by the bucket load is charm. As soon as you meet this cast you care about them. You are drawn to them and the pages fly by as you can't stop wanting to know more.

The perfect Thumbs Up!
