Mr. Bone is a dandy chap
It’s certainly true – everyone knows it.
This dapper skeleton has a little routine every day – he gets up, dresses in his finest and goes out to greet his lady love.
Mister Bone loved her in an indescribable way. She brought light to his day, warmth to his soul and a song to his harmonica.
Though as much as he loves her, she doesn’t seem to feel the same.
…he could feel her warmth washing upon his face like a first kiss.
Will she ever love him back? Will he ever be able to find love?Overall, I quite liked this book.
There were quite a few elements that worked really well and tied it all together.
In particular, the illustration style is extremely eye-catching and engaging.
I loved the use of line work and of a minimal color palette to really emphasize the oddness of Mr. Bone. It made for a visually entertaining experience!
I thought the plot was pretty well done – though I do think adding a bit more action would have rounded it out nicely. Right now, it felt a little too heavy on the introspection.
That being said, Mr. Bone was quite the main character – his mannerisms were interesting and intriguing, though I do wish we had gotten a bit MORE of him. He almost feels a little elusive – which made it difficult to pinpoint his character.
All in all, I thought this book was pretty good! It is definitely a short read but it was a fun one!
The book itself is a little spooky but not enough to be scary – definitely makes this book an excellent Halloween read.
I received a free copy from the author and Reedsy in exchange for an honest review
