9780007244775: Bone (2) - The Great Cow Race

One of the most highly acclaimed comic book stories of recent times launching as a stunning full colour graphic novel series.

Things seem well in the valley: Fone Bone is still living with Thorn and Gran’ma Ben, while his cousins Phoney and Smiley are working in the inn at Barrelhaven.

But peace never lasts for long when the Bone cousins are around. Soon Phoney Bone is up to his old con tricks again, trying to throw the bets on the annual Cow Race with a ‘mystery cow’ – really Smiley in a cow suit.

Will Phoney be run out of the valley just like he was run out of Boneville? It may not even matter, because there are dark stirrings in the woods – ominous signs that indicate the rat creatures are ready to go to war again…
