Bone: Tall Tales by Jeff Smith and Tom Sniegoski

Smiley Bone is "leading" a camping trip with the Bone Scouts. The scouts ask for a campfire story, and Smiley tells them tales of Big Johnson Bone, who founded Boneville.

This is a typical Bone graphic novel, but it's separate from the Bone cousin wandering in the woods series. Big Johnson Bone is a Davy Crockeresq character, who goes on adventures and fights bears and saves small woodland creatures from harm all the while telling tales of his heroics. We also see the first fight with the rat creatures and learn why they don't have long, rat-like tails. Lots of fun. The lovers of Bone will enjoy this companion graphic.

Bone: Tall Tales is available in August.
