Bartleby
Real Name:
Search for 'Bartleby' on Amazon


Bio:
A baby rat creature found by Fone Bone and adopted as a pet by Smiley Bone. He became a good friend to Smiley and when they left for home, he went with them. He unlike other Rat Creatures has round ears. It is explained that the Rat Creatures crop their ears. Bartleby explains that he ran away from the other Rat Creatures after he got his tail chopped off. He states that all Rat Creatures are born with beautiful long hairless tails (Like a rat), but all the Rat Creature cubs have their tails chopped off. This is due to their belief that a sort of boogeyman will drag them away in their sleep by their tails. (In the prequel book Stupid, Stupid, Rat-Tails, we learn that the Bone cousins' forefather Big Johnson Bone is the fabled boogeyman they fear, having come to the Valley a thousand years earlier and fought the rats by swinging them around by their tails.) In a sequence where it shows the land during the Dragons rule, Rat Creatures with long tails can be seen in the distance.

Named by Shaenon K. Garrity, for the title character in the short story "Bartleby the Scrivener" by Herman Melville.
