Bone: Ghost Circles: 10/02/10
In Ghost Circles by Jeff Smith, the mountain explodes spreading ash across the valley and leaving everything in ruins. Worse yet, ghost circles have begun to appear, taking everything in them somewhere else. Thorn, the Bone cousins and Bartleby have to make their way across this desolation to Atheia, the kingdom Thorn and her grandmother fled years ago.
It seems that readers of the series split over Ghost Circles. They either love the nonstop adventure or hate it. I loved it. I especially loved the brief glimpses into the ghost circles.
The artwork depicting the destruction is fantastic. As it happens, I was reading it during the weeks that Eyjafjallajökull was erupting. I will forever connect the book and the news together.

It is but you should start at the beginning with Out from Boneville.

Interesting connection for memory.
Did you read this with your child? Just curious about the scare factor. :)

I didn't read it to my son because he's not interested in the series at the moment. I don't however think it would scare him. He likes stories with monsters, magic and ghosts. Scholastic recommends the series for ages 9 and up.
