Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Enter an exciting new world and explore strange rooftop kitchens, ancient ruins, medieval treasures, and freakishly large bees!

The evil Hooded One surrounds the walled city of Atheia and offers the trapped citizens two choices: "Surrender or Die!" Fone Bone and his friends seek desperately for a way out so that Thorn can search for the mythological Crown of Horns — an ancient weapon that can defeat the Lord of the Locusts.

Meanwhile, the unflappable and greedy Phoney Bone prepares his latest moneymaking scheme: making money!

Finally, the usurper Tarsil himself corners our heroes in one of the biggest turning points in all of the Bone saga!

Review:

"This is the penultimate chapter in one of the most widely acclaimed graphic novel series in the United States....Adventure, comedy, imagination, and clean, accomplished artwork — bringing to mind such masters as Carl Barks, Walt Kelly, and Hayao Miyazaki — come together to produce a classic with wide appeal for readers ages ten to 100." Library Journal

Synopsis:

In a strange roof-top kitchen, high above the crowded streets of ancient Atheia, the Bone cousins try to save the city from the clutches of a tyrant. They learn that whoever controls Atheia's fabled treasures will win the loyalty of the soldiers, but time is running out — The Hooded One is drawing near, leading a legion of Rat Creatures bent on the destruction of the city and everyone in it!

About the Author

Born and raised in the American midwest, Jeff Smith learned about cartooning from comic strips, comic books, and watching animated shorts on TV. While most adults consider cartoons to be children's fare, Smith discovered early on that no topic of human experience — from the introspection of Peanuts or the politics of Doonesbury to the lyricism of Pogo — was beyond the wonderful world of comics. After four years of drawing comic strips for Ohio State's student newspaper starting in 1982, Smith co-founded the Character Builders animation studio in 1986. Then, in 1991, he launched the comic book Bone.

Bone is currently printed in thirteen languages around the world, and in 1998 was given the Eisner Award for Best Writer/Artist — Humor, as well as the 1998 Harvey Award for Best Cartoonist, Italy's Yellow Kid Award for Best Author, Spain's Premios Expocomic for Best Foreign Comics, and Finland's Lempi International for Best International Cartoonist.
