The Amazing Bone Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Its a bright and beautiful spring day, and Pearl is dawdling on her way home from school. Most unexpectedly, she strikes up an acquaintance with a small bone. Pearl and the bone immediately take a liking to each other, and before you know it, she is on her way home with the bone in her purse, left open so they can continue their conversation. But the trip home turns out to be surprisingly treacherous. Can a pig and a small talking bone outwit a band of robbers and a hungry fox? In the world of William Steig, anything is possible.

Synopsis:

Can Pearl, a pig, and her new friend, a small talking bone, outwit a band of robbers and a hungry fox?

Synopsis:

"Pearl (a piglet) discovers a talking bone, which had fallen out of a witch's basket...This is a tight mesh of witty storytelling and art, bound to please any audience." --Starred, Booklist
