Born and raised in the American mid-west, Jeff Smith learned about cartooning from comic strips, comic books, and watching animation on TV. In 1991, he launched a company called Cartoon Books to publish his comic book BONE, a comedy/adventure about three lost cousins from Boneville. Against all odds, the small company flourished, building a reputation for quality stories and artwork. Word of mouth, critical acclaim, and a string of major awards helped propel Cartoon Books and BONE to the forefront of the comic book industry.

In 1992, Jeff’s wife Vijaya Iyer joined the company as partner to handle publishing and distribution, licensing, and foreign language publications. In the Spring of 2005, Harry Potter’s U.S. publisher Scholastic entered the graphic novel market by launching a new imprint, Graphix with a full color version of BONE: Out from Boneville, bringing the underground comic to a new audience and a new generation.

In 2007, DC Comics released Smith’s first non-creator owned work, SHAZAM! Monster Society of Evil, a four-part mini-series recreating a classic serial from comic’s Golden Age. Between projects, Smith spends much of his time on the international guest circuit promoting comics and the art of graphic novels.

I have read some of the bone books in the past but my favorite one has been the fifth bone book. It is called Roque Jaw Master of the Easter Border. This book follows Fone Bone and Smiley Bone as they try to return Bartleby (the baby rat creature they found) to the mountains with the other rat creatures. Along the way they meet Roque Jaw who is a huge mountain lion that captures the three of them. This is because he believes that their cousin Phoney Bone has the power to unite the valley. He threatens to kill them if they do not help him. They manage to get away from Roque Jaw when he attacks two rat creatures. They enter a cave and escape through a secret passage that brings them to the rat kingdom. Roque Jaw then follows them to see if they are going to bring them to Phoney Bone but when he realizes that they are not going to take him there, he attacks them and takes control of them.

One reason that I have fun reading these books are the illustrations. Jeff Smith does an excellent job with the pictures in this book. I like how creative he was with each character and he makes sure that every page looks different. I liked this book and I recommend it to anyone who has read and enjoyed the other bone books and to anyone who is looking for something fun and different to read. (250 words)
