Skelly, a little skeleton girl, finds a bone one day. Who could it belong to? As Skelly searches for the bone's owner, she questions everyone from her skeletal goldfish, to her man-eating plants, to the monster who lives beneath the stairs. Finally, Skelly locates the bone's owner--and makes a new friend. Rising talent Jimmy Pickering has created a mildly spooky and totally original cast of characters who populate Skelly's Tim Burton-esque world.
Jimmy Pickering has illustrated a number of picture books, including "Bubble Trouble" by Stephen Krensky and "Sloop John B: A Pirate's Tale" by Alan Jardine. He also creates original art, which he shows at galleries around the globe including CoproNason in Santa Monica, California and Rotofugi in Chicago. He lives on the North Coast of Oregon with his loyal canine companions, Pugsley, Wednesday and Jesse.
