About the Book

It’s a bright and beautiful spring day, and Pearl, a pig, is dawdling on her way home from school. Most unexpectedly, she strikes up an acquaintance with a small bone.

“You talk?” says Pearl.

“In any language,” says the bone.

“And I can imitate any sound there is.” (Its former owner was a witch.) Pearl and the bone immediately take a liking to each other, and before you know it she is on her way home with the bone in her purse, left open so they can continue their conversation. Won’t her parents be surprised when she introduces her talking bone!

But before that happy moment comes, the resourceful bone must deal with a band of highway robbers in Halloween masks and, worse, a fox who decides that Pearl will be his main course at dinner that night.

William Steig, incomparable master of the contemporary children’s book, has never been better than in this audiobook version of The Amazing Bone.

The Amazing Bone is a 1976 New York Times Book Review Notable Children’s Book of the Year.
