A cute summary: Read the tragic story of Charles Darnay through Wishbone's eyes. It was hard imagining a dog (whiskers, tail, four legs and all) being married to dear Lucie, but that was how it went. I was also concerned about how Sydney Canton would do his part in the story, but it turned out more beautiful than I thought it could. Kudos to the author! For young readers, this is a great way to introduce to them "A Tale of Two Cities." The other half of the story about modern-day Wishbone and his owners, the Talbots, wasn't as interesting to me. And I didn't find Wishbone's "witty comments" appealing –- at all.
