, volume three of the nine-book Bone
saga, Lucius, Smiley, and Phoney survive an attack by the rat creatures and return safely to Lucius' tavern in Barrelhaven. Phoney, desperate to win a bet with Lucius, stokes the townspeople's fear of dragons and boasts that he is a professional dragonslayer.
Back at the farm, Fone Bone and Thorn are troubled by strange dreams, and Gran'ma Ben's reaction to them is stranger still: She reveals long-kept secrets and warns of great danger. Thorn, Fone Bone, and Gran'ma Ben may have to leave the farm forever.
"Smith provides his trademark blend of exciting action scenes, emotional pathos, and wisecracking humor....The art throughout brings graphic novels to a new height of expression and even beauty." Children's Literature
"Already a gripping, striking work in black and white, Bone is even more appealing in color. The lighter palettes highlight the story's playful humor....This offering should bring Smith's work a deservedly wider audience." School Library Journal
