Author and illustrator Steve Jenkins offers a dramatic view of the skeletal system in his book Bones. This visually powerful and scientifically intriguing volume provides a head-to-toe look at both human and animal bones. Who knew bones could be so fascinating?
Doug Cushman is also an author/illustrator and he is also interested in bones -- but his interest is in imaginative stories rather than factual explorations. In Dirk Bones and the Mystery of the Mission Books, Cushman introduces beginning readers to a skeletal newspaper reporter who just happen to have a knack for solving mysteries. Who knew a skeleton could look so good in a trench coat?
