B2SW: First Pages: The Kneebone Boy by Ellen Potter

The Kneebone Boy
by Ellen Potter

The book's set in a small English town and follows the Hardscrabble kids who are relocated to live with their aunt in London, where they discover they might be living next door to “a horribly misshapen boy who has figured in local legend.” It’s the story of the three Hardscrabble siblings and their search for the legendary Kneebone Boy. 

Why I chose this: Unlike some of the others I've chosen for B2SW, I didn't choose this one because it has something to do with a school setting.  I simply think this one is going to be a hit with kids everywhere, and I this opening that I read for the teaser just further confirms this for me.  I don't know when I'm going to get to read it, but a) I am excited to, and b) I wish I could experience it the way I would have if I had read it as a kid.

This week, why not share some of your childhood favorites with a child?
You never know; years from now, they might be dedicating their book to you...


  1. Oooo I really liked this teaser. I might have to check this book out.

  2. I think you've convinced me to check it out.

Let's be best friends.
