What's Bonesville About

Publisher Summary

This stunning picture book from the bestselling team of Jean-Luc Fromental and Joelle Jolivet cleverly introduces many of the bones that make up the human body. A mysterious beast is terrorizing the resident skeletons of Bonesville. Under cover of darkness, it steals a different bone from each townsperson, from cranium to phalanges. It takes the washerwoman s humerus, the butcher s fibula, and Dr. Strongbones s coccyx. Thanks to his patience and cleverness, Detective Sherlock Bones traps the monster, revealing that the beast is only the harmless Spot of the Baskervilles, on a mission to rebuild the lost skeleton of his master, Dr. Watsbones. Jolivet s bold illustrations and Fromental s witty storytelling make for a winning combination in this striking picture book, perfect for young Sherlock Holmes fans. “
