Scholastic, the global children’s publishing, education and media company, is delighted to announce the acquisition of US, Canada, Philippines, and English Language rights to new titles by Jeff Smith featuring characters from his bestselling BONE series of graphic novels.

First to be published will be BONE: Tall Tales, coming in Summer 2010, written by Jeff Smith and Tom Sniegoski, and illustrated by Jeff Smith, featuring new art and stories with favorite BONE characters. In addition, Scholastic will publish a highly-anticipated expansion of the BONE world—the Quest for the Spark Trilogy. Overseen by Smith, the trilogy will be written by Tom Sniegoski and illustrated by Jeff Smith. BONE Quest for the Spark: Book One (Fall 2010), BONE Quest for the Spark: Book Two (Spring 2011), and BONE Quest for the Spark: Book Three (Summer 2011) represent the first time Smith has continued the adventures set in the valley since the publication of Rose, the prequel to the BONE series—to be released by Scholastic/Graphix in August 2009. The deal for additional BONE publishing was negotiated by Vijaya Iyer for Cartoon Books/Jeff Smith and by David Saylor, Vice President, Creative Director of Trade Publishing and Editorial Director of Graphix, for Scholastic.
 
There are more than 4.5 million BONE books in print from Scholastic since the Graphix imprint first launched with the full-color version of Bone #1: Out from Boneville in 2005. Time Magazine named BONE one of the top ten graphic novels of all time, and Smith is the winner of multiple awards, including ten Eisner Awards and eleven Harvey Awards—two of the most respected awards in the comics industry.
