High aloft in th' cross-trees was that mad Tashtego!
Acquired: Purchased a new copy from an online retailer

Reason for Reading: Next in the series.

Vol. 3 starts off with Fone Bone and Thorn having strange dreams and Phoney and Smiley settling down to life at the farm.  Soon enough the latter two are taken back to the village to work off their debt to Lucius.  The rat creatures are out after everybody as each party gets caught in a rain storm.  Then Gran'ma Ben finally tells Thorn the real story of Thorn's life so far, the mysteries of her dreams and she is stunned.  This is a major turning point in the plot giving the story a new direction and mission.  Lots of laughs to be had here, as well as tons of action.  Rat creature attacks and the return of the red (orange) dragon.  (Love that guy!)  Another funny, exciting adventure in the Bone series that has me clamouring for Vol. 4.


  1. You seem to be enjoying these. You are flying through them. :)

  2. You got it! And I did press the magic button and ordered the next several books. I'm going to slow down a bit now and use them as a treat for myself plus I still have two Fables/JOF books to get caught up with too!
