I have a confession that I had never heard of this line of graphic novels by Jeff Smith until I was at my kids middle school a few weeks ago. I was sitting next to a young man (8th grader) in the school's office and he had his nose buried.
I said, " That looks like a cool book, what's it about?".
His eyes lit up as he went on to tell me about the adventures of three "bone cousins" from "Boneville" on a quest to outwit dragons, monsters and evil that is threatening mankind.
Looking at reviews it seems to be similar in flavor as "Lord of the Rings" but in humorous comic form.
He finished by saying, "I get really bored when I have to read but this keeps me entertained ."
Hey, works for me. I know first hand how difficult it can be to get boys interested in reading so I'll go on his word and recommend this series!
