Give Me Back My Bones!

A skeleton falls apart at the bottom of the sea, and says a rhyme to find back each one of his parts. “Who can spot my shoulder blade, my shrugging jacket-holder blade, my shiver-when-I’m, colder blade? Oh, scapula, come back!” Kim Norman‘s unusual and rollicking rhyme scheme will have you laughing at each page spread, and Bob Kolar‘s undersea illustrations offer bright underworld delights. Such fun, this picture book!
