In their first adventure the three Bone cousins, Fone Bone; Phoney Bone and Smiley Bone, are thrown out of Boneville and become separated and lost.  One by one, they find their way into a deep, forested valley and reunite at a farmstead run by tough Gran’ma Ben and her spirited granddaughter, Thorn.  But little do the Bones know that there are dark forces conspiring against them.
