SummaryAdd a Summary
Phonicible P. Bone (a.k.a Phoney Bone) is running for mayor. After a terrible turn of plans, he's chased out of his home–Boneville–and is accompanied by his two cousins, Fone Bone and Smiley Bone. They eventually find themselves in the mountains, where a swarm of locusts crowd around them separating them. Luckily, before that happened, Smiley Bone was able to find a map which Fone Bone managed to get a hold of. Following it, he travelled through the mountains. One night, two "rat-creatures" find him only to be chased off by The Great Red Dragon. The next morning, Fone Bone found himself in the valley and meets a small bug named Ted (he's also the first creature Fone encounters in the valley). Fone Bone asks Ted for help, and he warns Fone Bone that winter will come soon. But two rat-creatures show up, which then Ted leaves. Scared, Fone Bone says that this valley is to weird for him, and agrees to leave whether he finds his cousins or not.
Winter comes by, and he has befriended a possum mother and she asks him to babysits her children while she's gone. He obliges, but when playing a game, the possum kids (yes that's what they're called) run out into the woods and end up in the claws of rat-creatures. They chase Fone Bone until he ends up sitting next to The Great Red Dragon. The dragon chases them off and tells Fone Bone to go to the spring downhill. He does to wash his face and confronts Thorn, the person he was looking all winter. She brings him home to meet her Grandmother Ben who could help him. While this is happening, Phoney Bone walks out of the forest he was treading in and meets the Great Red Dragon. Phoney Bone tries to ask him if he saw Fone Bone around. When the dragon doesn't answer, Ted comes in. Phoney Bone, being the big imbecile he is, gets tired of Ted, says to take him to his leader, thinking that Ted lives in a colony. Ted–confused–decides to bring Phoney to Grandmother Ben. Eventually, Phoney Bone and Fone Bone are reunited, though both don't know where Smiley Bone is. After living with Grandmother Ben and Thorn, Phoney Bone decides to leave and goes into the forest where he meets the same possum kids. They tell him to go to Barrelhaven, a pub. He gets there and meets Smiley Bone, who's been working as a bartender. Fone Bone discovers that Phoney Bone has left and alerted Grandmother Ben. They decide to go to Barrelhaven, where the cousins are reunited.
