Only Freaks Turn Things Into Bones

It’s Little Grim’s first day at his new school.

He’s excited about making new friends, but the other kids don’t like his talent for turning anything he touches into bones. They call him “freak” and “weirdo” and refuse to play with him.  Little Grim runs away to hide but ends up learning something very important about being different.

Written and illustrated by two artists who were victims of bullying themselves, Only Freaks Turn Things Into Bones uses darkly gothic humour to address the very real issue of being different.

Available from Amazon,, and all good bookstores.
