In this unique book, Jake will tell you all about his own collection and introduce you to his bones, including: Oscar the hedgehog, Vulpy the fox and Wilma the deer. He'll take you round the world to see the biggest, smallest and most amazing bones on the planet, and he'll travel back in time to look at dinosaurs - the most incredible bones of all. Plus, Jake will teach you how to be a bone detective and share with you all the surprising things that animal bones can tell us.
