About the Author

Jeff Smith

Jeff Smith (born 1960 in McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania, USA) is an American cartoonist, best known as the creator of the self-published comic book series Bone. He has also worked for Character Builders Animation as an Art Director. He currently resides in Columbus, Ohio. Smith was born in McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania. His family moved to Columbus, Ohio, where he displayed an interest in cartoons dating back to as early as kindergarten. Smith made his mind up to become a cartoonist at nine years of age after a classmate brought a copy of some of Walt Kelly's Pogo comics to school.

While attending the Ohio State University, Smith created a daily four-panel strip for the student newspaper, The Lantern. That strip, called Thorn, introduced the characters that would later populate his comic book series Bone.

Smith has won several awards, including the 1995, 1996, 1998, and 2000 National Cartoonists Society Comic Book Awards (for Bone), nine Harvey Awards: Best Cartoonist in 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2000, and 2003, Special Award for Humor in 1994, and Best Graphic Album of Previously Published Works (for The Complete Bone Adventures) in 1994.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
