Description


For the youngest fans of the bestselling graphic novel series BONE, Jeff Smith has created two hilarious tales to delight beginning readers.

In Finders Keepers, the Bone cousins find a coin -- finders keepers! -- but the boys can't agree on how to spend it. Fone Bone wants an apple and bananas they can share. Smiley Bone wants an ice cream cone with a pickle on top. And Phoney Bone wants to build a giant statue... of himself! Whose idea will win out?In Smiley's Dream Book, Smiley Bone walks through the woods on a beautiful morning. During his journey, he meets a flock of friendly and playful birds. Smiley is having such a good time that he must find a fantastical way to keep up with his new friends as they soar into the big, blue sky.These wonderfully funny tales, told with lively artwork and expressive word balloons, will engage young readers like the best Sunday comics.
