After witnessing it for himself, William becomes fascinated and wants to know more about this strange family and their unusual bones. But it’s not just William who is interested in the Sticks’ bones. The Sticks soon find out they are in danger — and William intends to help them. Though he can’t slide under doors, he’ll do everything he can to save his new friends.
