Tall Tales

Bone: Tall Tales by Jeff Smith with Tom Sniegoski (ARC)

In this companion to the Bone saga, Smiley takes a group of scouts camping. While sitting around the campfire, he tells the youngsters tall tales of Boneville’s founder, Big Johnson Bone.

As this is an Advance Reader Copy, the illustrations are not all in color; however, this does not detract from the story. Also, due to the book being an ARC, there is one story missing.

I enjoyed this delightful graphic novel. It’s perfect for all ages of readers. While I am familiar with the Bone series of graphic novels, I haven’t read much of them. The format lends itself to being quick reads, and the illustrations add to the humor and adventure of the stories.
