Review: THE MISADVENTURES OF HOBART HUCKLEBUCK
I think almost everyone (except the always graceful and talented--not most of us) can identify with the hapless youngster Hobart HUCKLEBUCK. Some readers will shiveringly resonate to poor Hobart's ailurophobia (terror of cats) and others with his ready distraction and clumsiness. Middle grade and upper elementary readers will surely delight: girls in the magical environment, boys in his adventures and the silly names of people and objects. Altogether, Hobart's misadventures are winners.
