Get a Sneak Peek at ROSE, the prequel to BONE

Posted by at 8:28 am in Graphic Novels, Reads, Sneak Peek | Permalink

Bone-logo If you thought BONE, the graphic novel series by Jeff Smith, was over when book 9, Crown of Horns, came out, well then you'd be . . . only sort of right. On August 1st, the prequel to BONE, ROSE, comes out. (That's the story that happened before the story.)

BONE is the story of the three little Bone dudes who get lost in the woods, and wind up battling the Lord of the Locusts to help Thorn reclaim her family's kingdom. Their story is over.

But how was the kingdom lost? When did the Lord of the Locusts assume power? And how did a princess named Rose become the Grandma Ben we know in BONE?

You can find out all that in ROSE. And you can get a head start on the book by checking out the sneak peek right here on Ink Splot 26!

    i think the whole book of BONE should be a cartoon.oh and if it were on TV i would like to and a character the name of the character is Stacy and she would look like Fone Bone but she would have glasses and brown hair held in a pony tail and she wears a pink dress
