Billy Bones by Christopher Lincoln



Lincoln, Christopher Billy Bones: Tales from the Secrets Closet, pgs 284 Little Brown and Co. Language-G, Sexual Content-G, Violence G, This book starts out with a silly "Guide to the Afterlife" which starts the chuckles off right away. The main story is about a skeleton named Billy Bones, his parents, one Sir Barkley Braggety Biglum VI, Miss Primly, Sir Barkley Braggety Biglum VI niece, Millicent, a kind old lady, and a ghost and the Grim Reaper. A cute little story a lot like Tim Burton's claymations. I think any one could read this book and be thoroughly entertained. The characters are ones you could love or hate (depending on the character) and the story has a good moral. EL, MS, HS-ESSENTIAL Student Reviewer: RH
