Bone in Color

Bone_colorA while back we received this question on the Graphix message board, from DrVSP:

Q: I loved the Bone books, "Out of Boneville" and "The Great Cow Race". I especially liked the color schemes. In the bookstore, I saw a thick version with a lot of Bone books together, but there was no color. Do all the smaller paperback versions have color? It's really hard for me to tell with on-line bookstores because they only show the cover. I don't want to buy the big book (in black and white) if I can get the small ones in color. Please let me know.

A: Well, Hi DrVSP (and Graphix fans all over) — I can, in fact, let you you know! Jeff Smith, the writer and illustrator of BONE, wrote ALL 9 books a while ago in black and white — and Scholastic decided that BONE is so cool, it should be in color! (Well, except for the Bone cousins . . . they are white. Literally.) So, any BONE book that is published by Scholastic is in color. All 9 of the books are currently available from Scholastic as individual books in full color.

AND! Coming this August, the BONE Prequel: Rose will also be available from Scholastic in full color.

If you haven't seen what the books look like in color, you can go to the BONE website and click on "SEE INSIDE!" to get a preview.

    I think this book is so amazing! I always wonder what DID inspire him to create a amazing book! He should make another one that Fone bone and Thorn meet again! I hope that he will make at least one more bone book… before the series is over for good
    andI love Bone. I have read them twice now. I just wish something could happen between Thorn and Fone Bone,if you know what I mean. And it would be cool if the Bones decided not to leave,and they stayed at the palace with Gran’ma Ben and Thorn. I’m also looking forward to reading Rose.
    andI have never heard of this book. It kind of sounds intreging. I think i might actually read it. Thanks for the information and interesting details!!

    How about a One Volume Collection (all nine books together in one big book) in color? That’d be amazing!

    Please write more Bone books about the bone cousins and Thorn and Gran’ma Ben. I wish something could happen between Thorn and Fone Bone.Will there be more books?

    Question: what was Jeff Smith’s inspiration for creating Bone in the first place?
