Apparently, fire kills skeletons...

...which makes Skulduggery Pleasant, the ace detective who just happens to be a flame-throwing skeleton, even more funny. This is one of my favorite books for tweens from 2007 -- mostly for its bone-dry sense of humor -- and is also a relatively new area of reading for me. It's supernatural. I made my husband listen to my booktalk about the book last week, and he was really hung up on the flame-throwing. "That would kill him!!"
