"Filled with cool facts and sturdy fold-out surprises, this fun nonfiction guessing game offers a unique tour of the animal kingdom—from the inside out!"

— Meghan


Whose Bones? is a humorous, informative introduction to bones and anatomy, where young children learn about the bones in their own bodies by comparing them to those in animals.

Set up as a guessing game with visual and narrative clues, Whose Bones? invites readers to examine six animal skeletons and guess to whom they belong. The answer is exposed in a vibrant, foldout reveal, accompanied by an explanation as to why each animal's bones and bodies are so special.

A playful, informative introduction to bones for the youngest readers, by the author and illustrator of global bestseller Book of Bones.

A small book printed on thick paper-board for the small hands of children ages 2-4.
