The Bone Garden
Illustrator: Matt Saunders
Irréelle fears she’s not quite real. Only the finest magical thread tethers her to life—and to Miss Vesper. But for all her efforts to please her cruel creator, the thread is unraveling. Irréelle is forgetful as she gathers bone dust. She is slow returning from the dark passages beneath the cemetery. Worst of all, she is unmindful of her crooked bones.
When Irréelle makes one final, unforgivable mistake, Miss Vesper threatens to imagine her away once and for all. Desperate, Irréelle flees to the underside of the graveyard and embarks on an adventure to unearth the magic that breathes bones to life, even if it means she will return to dust and be no more. With echoes of The Graveyard Book, Heather Kassner crafts a spooky story humming with magic and mystery.
