Description

Hear ye, hear ye! Father-daughter duo Jeremy and Hermione Tankard are pleased to introduce the first book in a rib-tickling, heartfelt full-color graphic novel series perfect for fans of Bird & Squirrel!

Yorick is a skeleton who was just dug up after a few hundred years of sleep. He speaks like it too. “Forsooth, my joy, I barely can contain!”

Bones is the hungry dog who did the digging. Though he cannot speak, he can chomp.

What will become of these two unlikely companions? Will Yorick ever find the friend he seeks? Will Bones ever find a tasty treat that does not talk back?

The course of true friendship never did run smooth.

Publisher Review

"The Tankards' debut collaboration is a delightfully quirky and lively introduction to Shakespearean conventions and iambic pentameter. Fun, forsooth." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "[A] joyous, cross-generational read-aloud. A true comedy." -- Booklist "Hermione's droll text is slyly matched with Jeremy's fast-paced, emotive art, often with an inside-comics flair. It's tragedy and comedy combined, and that - plus flashes of merriment - captures the spirit of Yorick and his adorable companion." -- The New York Times Book Review
