About this deal
Children will love the outlandish story with monster chases and ghoulish beheadings, which is ultimately about friendships, fitting in and being confident in yourself. In this delightful natural and cultural history of bone, Brian Switek explains where our skeletons came from, what they do inside us, and what others can learn about us when these artifacts of mineral and protein are all we’ve left behind.

After the treasure hunt game which was based on Elinore’s story became a huge sensation, hopeless art student Frank turns into Sir Frank Churcher leading his readers to seven sites where jewels were buried: one by one, tiny golden bones were dug up until only Elinore’s pelvis remained hidden. Everyone is dreadful and especially everyone in the art world is dreadful: it's wonderfully full of suppressed rage and resentment. Like many children, Ben has an imaginary friend, but unlike most children, Ben’s friend comes to life; he is no longer imaginary; he is UNimaginary.Warm, witty and – despite the body count – soothing as ever, this is peaceful reading for an autumn afternoon. Wat volgt is een heerlijk doldwaas verhaal waar ik veel van heb genoten al waren er dingen die ik minder vond.

The Golden Bones was published in 1971 and it was the most ambitious, expensive picture book ever made.
