Reaction: This is a great book to read while reading Book 1. There is actually a lot to take in, a mythical setting, a multitude of characters and humor woven into a witty dialogue. So a handbook for novice graphic novel readers is a wise purchase. I especially appreciated the glossary-words/phrases such as ¿dreaming eye¿ or ¿gitchy¿ are listed here and help aid with comprehension!

The Bone Handbook is just what it sounds like, a source book of information concerning Jeff Smith's Bone. Printed as a companion to the Graphix/Scholastic reprints of the series, it is written in a slightly juvenile fashion, but that's because the Graphix/Scholastic versions have been marketed towards a younger audience. It still makes for a good refresher on what happens in the series and who the characters are. It's a really quick read, but fun all the same. If you are a fan of the Bone series, I'd say you'd probably enjoy this, just as a reminder of what went on in the series. It is a little spoiler-filled, so if you haven't read the series yet, be warned that this will give some of it away.

Are you a fan of BONE or new to the comics? Either way, there will be something in BONE HANDBOOK that will be of interest to you. If you are just starting with Book 1 of the series, the BONE HANDBOOK gives readers a brief background of the story and how it evolves. It explains how Fone, Phoney, and Smiley Bone get run out of Boneville and wind up on their various adventures. If you have been into the series from the beginning, it gives more explanations on the extended characters and how the Bones interact with them all. With lots of colorful artwork, and an interview with the creator, Jeff Smith, there is so much to absorb in the BONE HANDBOOK. To properly digest everything, the reader needs to set aside some quiet time and curl up with this book. If you were like me, prior to reading the BONE HANDBOOK, I could pick out the characters in a line-up but was unfamiliar with the background or storyline of Fone Bone and gang. Now, after reading this enjoyable handbook, I am eager to pick up Book 1 in the series and see the adventures that they get into. As an added treat to this book, there is a brief comic included in three parts, THE KITE. If this is a taste of the rest of the series, I know I will enjoy the humor of Mr. Smith.
