This is a book that truly reflects the important changes taking place in American cooking, and one that turns the joys of cooking--and eating--to their rightful place: the kitchen.

About the author (1995)

In 1991, Jeff Smith launched a company called Cartoon Books to publish his comic book Bone, a comedy/adventure about three lost cousins from Boneville. Word of mouth, critical acclaim, and a string of major awards helped propel Cartoon Books and Bone to the forefront of the comic book industry. In the Spring of 2005, Harry Potter's U.S. publisher Scholastic entered the graphic novel market by launching a new imprint, Graphix with a full color version of Bone. Out from Boneville, bringing the underground comic to a new audience and a new generation.
