    A longer story that s well suited to the lower primary grades during Halloween season as it s not too scary Pretty much all Nicholas does is sit and complain that From this night forth I quest, I quest, till all my bones together rest Disconcerting to be sure, but not precisely threatening S D Schindler s ink illustrations are full of tiny details and have a washed out palette that suits the ghostly story.Used for Spooktacular Tons of Fun program for 2nd and 3rd graders in October 2009.

    Haunting, humour and expertly crosshatched seventeenth century detail make the moonlit migrations of a borrowed bone a slightly spooky Hallowe en favourite.You can listen in on our chat about this book on ourJust One More Book Children s Book Podcast.

    We picked this book up at the library about two years ago and my daughter instantly fell in love with it This is definitely one of those books that she loves to read over and over again Unfortunately, I haven t been able to find it to buy for her, so we ll just have to keep borrowing it from the library.

    This is a book that I ADORED as a kid and still do It is a story of a ghost wailing for a bone and the journey his bone takes to get home It might sound silly based on my description but it is not It really is a ghost story and one that I have loved since before I could walk.

    Scaaaaaarry Seriously, the illustrations are wonderfully ghoulish, and the story is as wonderfully rural and folksy as Sleepy Hallow ForeverI quest, I quest,till all my bonestogether rest

    I had the great pleasure of reading this book to my daughters 2nd grade classroom Never have I seen so many kids, sit so quietly and riveted to a book They loved it I loved it Great read aloud story I need just like it
