Boogie Bones by Elizabeth Loredo. il Kevin Hawkes.
G. P. Putnam's Sons/The Putnam & Grosset Group: NY, 1997.

An odd and lighthearted story. Boogie Bones loves to dance. He hears of a dance contest at the local town hall and can't resist going, though skeletons don't leave the cemetery except for trick-or-treating. He gathers his courage and decides to only watch, but he cannot resist the music.

The story and illustrations are pure fun. The style is the usual Hawkes with bright colors and shadow, plenty of action and energy, some clever details, and interesting vantage points. Not my favorite of the Hawkes books, but not to be missed if you love his artwork.
