                    this is such a cool book! it is about a person with a huge nose and his brothers.like by person i mean not just an animal like a dog or something, but not a human either. I am in 5th grade, but the other books are scary to me.

                      This book by Jeff Smith is a pretty good one. It is called bone volume one. If you like short stories or comics this is definitely the book for you, however if you prefer more of a novel than this is not the right book for you. I would recommend this book to others.
