Bone - written by Jeff Smith
Jeff Smith, the author of Bone, was very funny. You can check out his site here.
When he wrote Bone, it wasn’t originally meant for children but as the twelve years went by, that it took him to write it, the kids that had been reading the comic books grew up.
He wrote the book in 55 comic books and at the time only males age 20 to 30 were interested in the story but they grew up and had kids of their own. They began reading the story to their kids and somehow that’s how it transformed into a children’s book, which Scholastic picked up and now it has been translated into 23 different languages.
