Was there ever a more overall delightful work then Jeff Smith’s Bone? Good for all ages, combing cartoon animal comedy with a high fantasy quest, princesses, dragons, monsters, talking bugs, and whatever a Bone is, the series told the epic tale of Fone Bone and his two cousins Smiley and Phoney as they found themselves caught up in a massive adventure in a mysterious valley.
Yes, I, Tom, read through the entire series for this site. OK, there are only 9 trades, so it was hardly the most difficult of quests, unlike anything Fone gets up to with the likes of Gran’ma Ben and Thorn. Lots of royalty there and some of them don’t even know it.
