I just realized, after all this time of doing homework and preparing for exams, I haven’t done ANY blogging. I am now making a change to that. Since I (try to) read a lot, I thought I’d do a little piece on “What I’m Reading for fun”.

So… among other things I’m reading…


The BONE series of Jeff Smith

The story starts with three Bone cousins out in the desert: The main character (so far at least) Fone Bone, comic relief cigar-smoking Smiley Bone and greedy Phoncible P. “Phoney” Bone. They’ve been thrown out of their village, Boneville, for reasons that aren’t quite clear to the reader. Soon enough they get seperated by a swarm of locusts and Fone Bone stumbles into a valley where he encounters all kinds of creatures. One of the characters he meets is a young girl named Thorn who he instantly has a crush on.Though there are the “rat creatures” which are gangly, big teethed, rather unintelligent “monsters” the series is pretty kid friendly. So any child that’s old enough to read and understands that this is just a story, shouldn’t have any problems.

The story is fun. It kept me turning the page. It is now a must read in my collection. I will be buying the rest of the books when I have the budget to do so! I might include them into my lessons ? Comic book, readers'theatre.. why not !
I started a gloster on Bone for my students.. I am very inspired by this book
