In this Funnybones story, the skeletons go sledging—WHEE! and crashing—BANG! They can't see their bones in the white snow but they can see a black cat . . . until she slips into their dark, dark cellar.


"Bouncing, alliterative phrasing and graphically arresting artwork provide "spirited" entertainment in these cheerful continuations of the Funnybones books." —Publishers Weekly
