Inspired by the Robert Louis Stevenson classic, this new Wishbone adventure finds our hero following the trail of a strange and evil man in 19th-century London.
Children's Literature - Children's LiteratureWishbone, the well-read dog of the "Adventures of Wishbone" series, and his friends in Oakdale are puzzled. Joe's neighbor, Wanda, meets the man of her dreams, and her personality changes. She invites the Talbots to see this mystery man perform in a local talent show, and everyone is in for a surprise! The events remind Wishbone of the book The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, by Robert Louis Stevenson. Charming illustrations and adorable text delight and spin together both stories as Wishbone imagines himself as John Utterson, a lawyer who follows the trail of a strange and evil man who terrorizes nineteenth-century London. Charming black-and-white illustrations, fun facts about London, and wonderfully written transitions between the two stories make this adventure a jolly good read. Includes information about this classic book and its author. 2000, Gareth Stevens Publishing, Ages 9 to 13, $21.27. Reviewer: Dia L. Michels
