    Fun comical short tales of the journeys of Dalton Quayle&Pemberton

    We see Dalton Quayle and his adventures through his close colleague Dr. Pemberton's journal he keeps to document their adventures. These stories are nothing short of fun! Fun in the tale and fun in the play on words, puns on names, movies, songs, you name it. And the literal meanings of words as well, to make fun and bring enjoyment.

    The characters have a formal and proper feel with the way they carry themselves along with the language. But then the names of the characters make you smile. And the meanings they draw from words and happenings. Pemberton always takes his many cherished guns with him everywhere, in the air and under the sea, but seems to never have one on him when the time comes (he forgets to grab one). And the genius brave and masterful Quayle solves the cases with the help of he trusty friend Pemberton.


    Each story grows and relates references back to the previous journeys along with hints of others we don't see here. As you go through each story you feel closer to both, Quayle and Pemberton, looking forward to the adventures they seek.

    I loved the talent of telling the stories and adding in lines or names from movies, songs, and such and adding a new meaning to it with the story. But also adding more meaning to the story as well. So many of these lines are easy to place the origination but they fit so well in the stories here. And I'm sure there are lines I didn't place that you would. So much here. I could reread this book and probably come up with more that I missed the first time through.

    I enjoy how at the end of each story Quayle summarizes the case and all the details pulled together in detail for us. They all work out perfectly when I hear him work it out. And I love the twists to the stories.

    Each story has a different theme to it. So I've listed each story separately with a short description on it.
