Review by Mason Atkins (New Urban High School)



Bone by Jeff Smith is a funny and interesting comic book.



Bone is funny because the characters have a hilarious personalities. For example, Phoney Bone has stupid ideas and most of the time is angry. That doesn’t sound funny, but it is.  He got angry in “Book 2” because Smiley Bone made the worst cow suit. Smiley is funny too.  He’s pretty stupid and ruins all the plans, for example the plans to rebuild the farm house in “Bones 2.” Although Bones is entertaining, it also is interesting.



Bone is interesting for many reasons. They have villages that have never heard of money, and also there are dragons and also monsters called rat creatures. The dragon is the protector of the Bone cousins, and the rat creatures are ugly monsters that live in the woods and work for a king rat creature called Kingdok. The rat creatures are chasing down the Bone cousins and have not succeeded in capturing them because of the dragon. This is just one of the many reasons the plot of this book is riveting.


If you like funny and interesting comic books, check out Bone by Jeff Smith.




Into The Wild (summary by Paige Antonich)

Posted in Adventure, Book Reviews, Travel Stories on May 14, 2015 by Mr. Winch

Author Jon Krakauer wrote about the wild adventures of Christopher Johnson McCandless as he goes into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley. 

McCandless graduated Emory University May 12th 1990. He got his bachelors degree that year and double majored in history and anthropology. McCandless was wealthy and gifted. He grew up in Washington D.C. with his parents and sister. McCandless had anger building toward his parents since his freshman year in college, until he graduated and donated his $25,000 dollar savings anonymously to charity. From there Christopher jumped in his car and left without telling a single soul where he was going or that he had even left. Not too much later a flash flood hits ruining McCandless’s car, and that’s where the real journey begins!

He had to ditch the car and start hitchhiking his way around the whole Northwest to Alaska, getting jobs here and there not staying in one place for too long. After about two years McCandless made it to his final destination where he spent 16 weeks hunting whatever he can and living off the land.

You’ll have to read the book to see how it ends.
