Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In The Great Cow Race, volume 2 of this 9-book epic, Fone Bone and his cousins plan to return home after visiting the village of Barrelhaven with Thorn and Gran'ma Ben. But Phoney risks everything on one last get-rich-quick scheme for the town's annual Great Cow Race. As usual, Phoney's plans go disastrously awry, and Boneville seems further away than ever. Meanwhile, ominous signs indicate that a war is brewing, and Fone finds himself helping his friends defend their valley from a formidable enemy.

Review:

"The race itself is a riot (literally)....Bone is characterized by fine artwork; crisp, compelling storylines; and funny, yet surprisingly complex, characters. Jeff Smith's art reminds me of Walt Kelly's Pogo, and his world is populated by strange and wonderful creatures..." KLIATT

Synopsis:

Fone Bone and his cousins plan to return home after visiting the village of Barrelhaven with Thorn and Gran'ma Ben. But Phoney risks everything on one last get-rich-quick scheme at the town's annual Great Cow Race.

Book two in the Bone series. This series is fantastic, but it's very difficult to describe. All the elements of a classic fantasy adventure are mashed together with slapstick comedy and acerbic wit. The main characters are drawn in a cartoonlike fashion, but the world they inhabit reveals Smith's formidable artistic talent. Totally hilarious, and bound to give you some warm squishes besides.
