Children's Literature - Children's Literature
As the seventh in the "Wishbone Mystery" series, this light fiction read opens in a small town setting and its main characters include Joe, a fourteen-year-old heading into the 8th grade, his friends, and his dog Wishbone. The plot focuses on the re-opening of the Moonlight Drive-In and the curious obstacles the owner is confronting. The story becomes increasingly more suspenseful and captivating as readers learn that the ritzy business owner of MegaMall, a corporate tycoon, wants to buy the Moonlight Drive-In. As the tale unfolds, important themes are revealed--big buying out small, money influencing decision-making, and the value of simplicity and community. Strickland and Fuller recreate the spirit of the drive-in, and the community recognizes its worth. Readers should be inspired by the sense of community and volunteerism that is displayed for this cause. 1999, Gareth Stevens Publishing, Ages 8 to 12, $21.27 and $3.99. Reviewer: Melinda Tierney
