The Skeleton Family

Author(s): Ian Chapman

Picture books - NZ

The Skeleton Family is just like everyone else – Skelly-mum is an artist who paints beautiful pictures, Skelly-dad is popular at parties because he plays the guitar, daughter Maia is at high school and she loves gymnastics while her younger brother Orio is an aspiring YouTuber. They’re so normal they even have a cat and a dog.

The one thing that sets the Skeleton Family apart from everyone else is the fact that they have no skin, but this doesn’t matter at all because everyone likes them just as they are … well, everyone except their new neighbours, who think the family is a bit creepy. Will the Skeleton Family be able to win over the new neighbours and persuade them that they’re not that different because beneath every skin-covered person lies a skeleton?

The book also contains the musical score for the song The Skeleton Family sing to their new neighbours. A QR code links to a  recording of the song.
