Bone #2: The Great Cow Race | Scholastic
But here's the thing. The folks I mentioned above are are masterful storytellers, and they bring us stories with complex tone. Complex tone is different from inconsistent tone. A complex tone is a delicious four-course dinner.
Inconsistent tone is a chocolate milkshake with bacon, egg, mango, and ranch dressing in it. I bring this up because Bone has a very odd mix of tones in it. There's strong thread of classic fantasy we-have-to-save-the-world-from-evil. There's slapstick. There's a very light love story.
There's a dark mystery. There's element of animal fable in it, and hayseed farce. It should be a train wreck.
But it's not. It works. I look at the pieces of this and think, "Wow. You shouldn't have all these things together in one story.
As someone who strives for a consistent tone in his work, it's interesting for me to see how so many odd and seemingly antithetical elements can work together to make a solid story. Nov 30, Mariah Roze rated it liked it. This was definitely better than the first book! The characters were more developed. The pictures spoke more for themselves. I enjoyed it! I read this for my Couple's Book Club with my boyfriend for our November read: View all 4 comments.
Feb 21, Mario rated it it was amazing Shelves: Not a single Ohmygosh in this. I thought that was gonna stick. Oh well These are so much fun to read. And this one also was a lot more funnier than the first one. It made me laugh out loud so many times. Really looking forward to see where the series is going. Aug 04, Danger rated it really liked it. The story continues, this volume, for me, pretty much on equal footing with the one before it, at least in terms of holding my attention.
Aug 20, Sesana rated it really liked it Shelves: I think I'm getting into this story. I had a lot of fun with the cow race story that takes up much of the volume. Phoney is significantly less annoying when he's actively trying to scam somebody, and I ended up actually kind of liking him and Smiley by the end of the book.
Not nearly as much as I like Fone and Thorn, of course. There are some hints towards the deeper story, but Smith doesn't hit you over the head with it. Most of all, I like that this feels like a complete story in and of itself I think I'm getting into this story.
Bone, Vol. 2: The Great Cow Race
Most of all, I like that this feels like a complete story in and of itself, not a hunk chopped out of a bigger story. Oct 22, Rebecca McNutt rated it it was amazing Shelves: Another fabulous edition to the graphic novel Bone series!
This book is funny, dark, exciting and fantastic all at the same time. Apr 28, Jaksen rated it really liked it.
I think I got their names right! Will the little guy ever learn?
Now he's taking bets that his gambling gambit will succeed - you see, he's betting everyone will bet on his Mystery Cow Smiley in disguise, a cow suit! Cuz she always does! But things have a way of backfiring, and meanwhile A rambling, confusing, big-hearted drama which is hard to define. You just gotta read it! Four stars. Mar 31, Gary Butler rated it really liked it Shelves: Number out of on my all time book list. Very original stuff. Moving a little away from some of the darker themes in the first book, the Great Cow Race is about Phoney Bone's nefarious plot to bilk the locals by hyping a surprise entrant in the race versus Grandma, the perennial winner, who is portrayed as "over the hill.
I was disappointed that my library book was only black and white, and missing some of the excellent coloration from the first book I read. Feb 24, Jim Gorman rated it really liked it Shelves: Second in the Bone series.
I must admit, it is pretty fun to read, especially trying to figure out what Phoney Bone did to have a specter after him. It is also funny to see how he tries to rig the great cow race to win all the goods in town, since they dont use money. I just wish Thorn would return Fone Bone's affection. I will definitely pick up the next book in the series. Feb 03, Matthew Whitelaw rated it it was amazing.

Jan 02, Henry rated it really liked it. Oct 01, Michael rated it really liked it Shelves: This just squeaked by with 4 stars: I almost didn't pick it up since the first one was just average, but I'm glad I read it.
The cow race cinched the fourth star! And the quiche jokes.
Bone #2: The Great Cow Race
The only thing that bothered me was that now that we are meeting the whole town, it's all white folks, except a sudden tongue-in-cheek cameo. I checked, and yes Aladdin came out the This just squeaked by with 4 stars: I checked, and yes Aladdin came out the year before this was published!
With the ridiculous-looking main characters drawn white as actual bones, it would be nice to have more diversity and I don't mean rats and dragons! Out from Boneville title. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For the video game, see Bone: The Great Cow Race.
