My introduction to graphic novels was more along the lines of Maus and that ilk. Bone helped remind me that the form can be used to make you laugh and can carry you through adventure as well as any movie. It's light-hearted without being frivolous, well-wrought, well-drawn, and intelligent without being inaccessible. If you're new to graphic novels, it's a lovely gateway. If graphic novels are old hat, try this one on for size and remember what it is like to be carried away.

I waited almost 10 years to finish Jeff Smith's story of the Bone cousins, and once I did, I regretted being done because I wanted to know more. Written with humor, sadness, and lessons in compassion, family bonds, and humility, this tale is great for all ages and a rare gem.

Bone was the most exciting graphic noval I have ever read. It starts out slow but it pick up so fast I didn't want to stop reading. This is a funny good book that will make you have a smile on your face when you finish. This book will pick you up and it's easy to follow. Make sure you have someone to pull you out of the story. If you read this to you children I bet it would make a good story. I loved this graphic noval series.

"Review" by , "Bone is storytelling at its best, full of endearing, flawed characters whose adventures run the gamut from hilarious whimsy to thrilling drama. Along the way, Smith's musings...take on a greater relevance than you'd ever expect. (Grade: A)"
"Review" by , "Combining the instant gratification of strong cartooning with the deep engagement of epic storytelling...Bone has becomes the best all-ages graphic novel yet published....Bone now deserves to go from hipster cult item to mainstream literary success."
"Review" by , "The compilation makes it evident how fully formed Smith's vision was from the very beginning....His remarkably accomplished drawing style, in the manner of such comics masters as Walt Kelly and Carl Barks, was fully formed from the start, too."
"Review" by , "Charming, character-driven fantasy with an elegant design and masterful story-telling in the tradition of Walt Kelly, Charles Schulz, and Carl Barks."
"Review" by , "Bone has the multi-level writing and artwork of the best Chuck Jones cartoons or early Disney movies. It's overflowing with subtext about conflicting philosophies of power, cultural imperialism, and political responsibility — though not enough to get in the way of its silly fun."
"Review" by , "[This] sprawling, mythic comic is spectacular."
"Synopsis" by , Collects all nine volumes of Jeff Smith's acclaimed, multi-award-winning Bone series in one trade paperback edition.
"Synopsis" by , An American graphic novel first! The complete 1,300-page epic adventure from start to finish in one deluxe trade paperback.

Three modern cartoon cousins get lost in a pre-technological valley, spending a year there making new friends and out-running dangerous enemies. Their many adventures include crossing the local people in The Great Cow Race and meeting a giant mountain lion called RockJaw: Master of the Eastern Border. They learn about sacrifice and hardship in The Ghost Circles and finally discover their own true natures in the climatic journey to The Crown of Horns.
