Synopsis: Bonaparte is having a tough time. It’s hard for this young skeleton to just hang loose when he can’t keep hold of himself.
When he plays catch, his throwing arm literally takes a flyer. Eating lunch can be a real jaw-dropping occasion. How can he start school when he has so many screws loose?
Luckily, Bonaparte hit the bone-anza when it came to his friends. Franky Stein, Black Widow, and Mummicula all have some boneheaded ideas to help pull him together. But will it be enough to boost his confidence and get him ready for the first day of school?

Review: I thought this one was super cute. Of course, as a skeleton, you would have trouble keeping your bones together! I love how all of his friends teamed up to find a solution. While many of their ideas didn’t work, it was a cute take on friendship and helping a friend out, especially since even though their idea didn’t work, they kept on trying! I chuckled at the solution, which happens to be a bone fetching dog named Mandible. I also like that even though Bonaparte was worried people at school wouldn’t like him because his bones fall off that he discovers that’s not the case at all. People like him for him. While it has that Halloween feel since they’re all monsters, it has nothing to do with Halloween at all.
