What's the Story?:

From "Bonaparte is having a tough time. It's hard for this young skeleton to just hang loose when he can't keep hold of himself. 

When he plays catch, his throwing arm literally takes a flyer. Eating lunch can be a real jaw-dropping occasion. How can he start school when he has so many screws loose? 

Luckily, Bonaparte hit the bone-anza when it came to his friends. Franky Stein, Black Widow, and Mummicula all have some boneheaded ideas to help pull him together. But will it be enough to boost his confidence and get him ready for the first day of school?"

My Two Cents:

"Bonaparte Falls Apart" is the adorable story of a little skeleton who is a little different: he falls apart whenever he walks or tries to play with his friends. His friends try the best to put Bonaparte back together again but nothing works. Eventually Bonaparte realizes that it's okay to be himself, flaws and all, and finds a cute dog buddy to help him when the going gets tough at school.

Looking for a not scary book perfect for Halloween? This is it. The illustrations are adorable. The story is upbeat and uplifting. It also has a really good message. My girls were in love with the little dog in the book. This is a great story to share with the whole family!
