Review Quotes:
SLJ

Gr 3 Up-Exiled from their home, the Bone cousins have discovered a beautiful but frightening world in the valley. The tone darkens in this volume as their friend Thorn learns of her tragic past, the bloodthirsty rat creatures become even more menacing, and war appears imminent. 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, while darker shades heighten the immense drama unfolding in the valley. This offering should bring Smith's work a deservedly wider audience.-Lisa Goldstein, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
