The Spring Fair! Don’t you just love it, Fone Bone?
Acquired: Purchased a new copy from an online retailer
Reason for Reading: Next in the series.
The story continues on from Vol. 1 with everyone arriving at the anticipated spring fair. Phoney Bone and Smiley Bone put their plan into action to scam the townspeople and Gran’ma Ben is ready to take on the cows in the annual cow race. Of course all sorts of shenanigans happen and nothing works out the way it should, well except for Gran’ma Ben. Thorn is having strange dreams about the past and the Rat Creatures are after Phoney Bone but with orders to kill the other two, if necessary. Not a lot to say except I’m loving the story and the characters. Fone Bone is still my favourite and his crush on Thorn is cute, though I haven’t taken to her yet. I much prefer Gran’ma Ben as main female lead at this point. Looking forward to Vol. 3, then I will have to decide whether to buy the next volumes, as well, or start using the library.
