A return to the enthralling world of BONE with book one in this gripping spin-off novel trilogy, illustrated in four-color

Twelve-year-old Tom Elm is just an ordinary turnip farmer from the Valley, but he's always felt destined for something bigger. So when he discovers everyone in his village is asleep and plagued by nightmares, he assembles a band of unlikely heroes. They must fight to preserve the Spark--a divine light born at the core of a vast, dark nothingness called the Nacht. The Nacht is trying to permeate the Waking World with nightmares of the Dreaming, and it's Tom's mission to defeat the Nacht and its most loyal follower, the Constable. If he fails, his family--and everyone--might never wake up again.

Jeff Smith

Jeff Smith, born February 27, 1960, is an American cartoonist best known as the creator of the self-published comic book series Bone. Jeff was born in McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania and grew up in Columbus, Ohio.

He learned about cartooning from comic strips, comic books, and animated TV shows. Smith has cited Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts as a very early influence on his understanding of comics. He has also named Walt Kelly's Pogo, which he discovered at the age of nine when a classmate brought a collection of the comics to school, as his "biggest influence in writing comics". Smith began to create comics with the "Bone" characters as early as 1970, when he was about 10 years old.

For his work on Bone, Smith has received numerous awards, among them ten Eisner Awards and eleven Harvey Awards. In 1995 and 1996 he won the National Cartoonists Society's award for Comic Books.

His most recent series, RASL, focused on an art thief who hops through dimensional barriers, hiding out on various parallel worlds.
