Book Review: Doll Bones


If you are looking for a hauntingly good tale for Halloween “Doll Bones” by Holly Black will fit the bill.  Holly Black is the author of the popular “Spiderwick Chronicles” series which was released as a motion picture in 2008.  Doll Bones is the tale of a doll that contains the ashes of a child that has died. The child’s ghost comes to the characters when they are dreaming and begs them to bury the doll so that the child’s spirit can rest in peace. This book is definitely geared towards older elementary school reader and middle schoolers. We really enjoyed this book and found it entertaining. Happy Reading!
