Skelly and Femur

Skelly and Femur Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

All sorts of things are missing around Skelly Manor. Skelly is missing her buttons. Her dog, Femur, is missing his bone. The ghosts are missing their dishes. Where could they all be? And who took them? The answer will surprise and delight readers of all ages. This gently scary sequel will be a favorite for Halloween and year-round.

Review:

"In this follow-up to Skelly the Skeleton Girl, the cadaverous 'Skelly,' who sports prominent eyelashes and a decorative bat in her orange hair, and her dog, Femur, are alarmed when their possessions go missing, including the buttons from Skelly's dress, Femur's bone and items belonging to the other residents of Skelly's mansion. 'My umbrella is missing. Now I must stay indoors,' declares a cranky coffin dweller with bat-shaped glasses. The duo is 'stumped,' until a noise in the attic leads them to the answer. The story itself jump-cuts rapidly between spooky locations, but Pickering's gothic-cute illustrations exude personality. Ages 4 — 7." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Skelly, a little skeleton girl, is missing her buttons. Her dog, Femur, is missing his bone. All of her friends are missing something. Why have so many things gone missing in Skelly Manor? The answer will be a delicious surprise for everyone.
