After years of hiding in the Thackery family house, Sid the skeleton is delighted to finally have his moment in the spotlight. He's starring in a high school production of Hamlet. Well, not so much starring in as being a prop. At least part of him has a part - he's using his head to play Yorick of "Alas, poor Yorick" fame. Every day, Georgia Thackery's daughter, Madison, who's also in the play, brings in his skull, and every night, she takes him home...

Publisher's Summary

And the best performance as a skull goes to...

After years of hiding in the Thackery family house, Sid the skeleton is delighted to finally have his moment in the spotlight. He's starring in a high school production of Hamlet. Well, not so much starring in as being a prop. At least part of him has a part - he's using his head to play Yorick of "Alas, poor Yorick" fame. Every day, Georgia Thackery's daughter, Madison, who's also in the play, brings in his skull, and every night, she takes him home....

Until one night when he's accidentally left at school - and hears the sounds of someone being murdered. But the next day, there's no body and no one seems to be missing.

Sid is not a numbskull - he knows what he heard. Georgia thinks he imagined it - until a week later when a body is found. Now Georgia and Sid will both need to keep their heads as they stick their necks out and play sleuth to catch the conscience of a killer....

    "Humerous, Relaxing "Cozy""

    I liked the first book in this series enough to buy the second one when it became available on Audible.

    What makes this series unique for me is that one of the main characters is a skeleton named Sid who walks, talks, and has a Facebook page, but doesn't eat or breathe. The other main characters are regular human beings who accept Sid as normal part of their lives.

    The plotting of the first book seemed more intricate and enjoyable to me. Even so, I like the main characters and the humor and liked this book. If there is a third book in the series I will read it.

    "Fun"

    Pity there are only 2 in this series. Makes you wish you could have a "pet" skeleton.
    Thoroughly enjoyed this light hearted book. Just picturing what was happening made me laugh. If you want something nice and light but gets you wondering who did it get this book.

    "A new meaning for 'A Skeleton in the Closet'"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I found this book well written and very funny.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Skeleton Takes a Bow?

    When Sid breaks into the cabin to rescue Madison.


    What about Katina Kalin’s performance did you like?

    I gave Katina Kalin 5 stars because she does an outstanding narration, has a lovely voice and catches even the most subtle of innuendo's. A very skilled narrator.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A Skeleton worth knowing


    Any additional comments?

    A great story with lots of humor and moves along at a good pace. A real attention keeper and original concept.
