Throughout the book woven between the trivia is the story of The Kite. You can also learn how to make Cheese and Bacon Quiche from the book Crown of Thorns, peanut and pickle sandwiches (author Jeff Smith's favorite sandwich), and one of Smiley's and Bartleby's favorite meals a Blank Sandwich!
Since I haven't had time to read the series, this book provided me with information to understand more about the series and its popularity. Bone : Handbook, will definitely be entered into our Extremely Popular Binder for checkout and I'll have to get a couple of additional copies to assure everyone getting a turn to check it out!
