Jeff Smith's Bone on sale at Costco

For all my friends in Ottawa I just wanted to bring it to your attention that the first 7 volumes of Jeff Smith's fantasy series Bone can be purchased at Costco at half price or $6 each. I was in there on the weekend and picked up volumes 4-7. I had previously picked up 1-3 in a boxed set.

The series was originally released as a series of self published black and white comic books. As time passed the comics were collected into a series of 9 separate graphic novels and a massive all in one edition. These new editions at Costco are being published by Scholastic in full colour.

These multiple award winning books are great for kids. They are packed with action, adventure, humour and heart, lots of heart. I personally can't wait until Anna is old enough to read them so I've been stocking up.
