Title: The Adventures of Wishbone #1: Be A Wolf!
Author: Brad Strickland
What it's about: Wishbone jumps into the story of Beowulf, paralleling the Old English tale to the events he and his owner Joe are undergoing in real life. Joe loses his backpack while at a friend's house, and it's revealed at the friend's neighbor, a mean old lady, must have picked it up. Joe and Wishbone need to summon their courage and face this "monster".
What I thought: The writing in this, especially in the Beowulf sections, is actually pretty good. The Oakdale storyline is kind of predictable where it ends up, but it ends up being pretty touching.
Overall: Really a pretty fun read.
