Billy Bones: Tales from the Secrets Closet

By Christopher Lincoln (Trade Paperback, 2010)
High Manners Manor creaks and groans as old houses do-but this is no ordinary house. In the dark, specters hiss, ghosts grumble, and skeleton boy Billy Bones and his family file the Biglum family's deepest secrets in a locked and hidden closet. When Billy makes his first human friend, Millicent Biglum, the real adventure begins.

In the tradition of filmmaker Tim Burton, Christopher creates a richly-imaginative, spooky adventure where friendships bloom, betrayals linger, schemes entangle-and heroism appears in the most unexpected places.

Christopher Lincoln graduated from the School of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University and spent nearly a decade working as an animator. He credits animation for teaching him how to write, because an animator must learn how to inhabit a character's body and move him in a world of his own. This is his first book for young readers.

    "This story is original and suspenseful, and the creepy characters are surprisingly warm and endearing, proving that humans can sometimes be scarier than monsters." --Children's Literature
