Bone: Tall Tales – Revisit the world of Bone in this prequel title. Smiley Bone sits down with a group of young campers to retell the tales of Boneville’s origin and its tough, no-nonsense founder Big Johnson Bone, who discovered Rolling Bone River and founded Boneville. But, since little is actually known of Big Johnson Bone’s adventures before then, what follows are a series of tall tales told with wild antics complete with rat creatures, dragons and a snarky little monkey! Bone has been a hit with both kids and adults, so this new series of stories, now in color and collected in one volume with new material, will sure to be hit in any library.
