Bone Read-Along


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.

Wanna see what I said?  Check the links below for the complete run down of the entire original series.

Book One–Out From Boneville

Book Three–Eyes of the Storm

Book Four–The Dragonslayer

Book Five–Rock Jaw Master of the Eastern Border

Book Six–Old Man’s Cave
