About the Book

The name is Bone—JAMES BONE, 007-years-old and licensed to dig. He and his friends are on a secret mission to find fossils from around the globe to share at school. Will they complete their mission in time – or could this be the end of Show and Tell for our brave explorers?

James is a die-hard dino buff. Lucky for him, his paleontologist mom enlists his help with a big dig gig at a dino site! Along with his friends Pick, Shovel, and his dog Diggy, our young excavator ends up on a rambunctious, rip-ROARING archaeological adventure! Dr. Archie Ologist is napping on the job.

Bonehead tries to beat them to the best finds. And it’s ALL ALLOSAURUS, ALL THE TIME! But rest assured: James always gets his bone.

This all-new graphic novel series is designed for a reading audience in the elementary age range and introduces them to the world of James Bone; the international (young) man of misadventures from the Mesozoic!

A Word From The Author

A Word From The Author

My goal was to craft something a reader wants to read; read out loud, read to a parent or sibling, read with a friend, read over and over, and otherwise find confidence and joy in their ability to read, no matter their age or language. They’ll enjoy the friendship, fumbling, and fun and feel a part of it all, and want to continue the journey with James, friends, dinos, and more!”
