I loved this book. I read it over and over again. No other story was ever as interesting. I remember my mom used to try and persuade me to get other things. We would scout other books in the library before I'd finally say I want "Bony Legs." I also loved "In a Dark, Dark Room and Other Scary Stories" which was also illustrated by Dirk Zimmer.
UPDATE: Bony Legs is out of print :( One day I will buy it from Amazon.
