Couldn't love this book more! I've read this to my classes (3, 4, AND 5th) and they have ALL loved it every single year! I still chuckle that the only reason I knew about this book is because I found it on a random search of my new, inherited classroom library. Such a great find!
From a reading standpoint, it's fabulous for many reasons, not least of which is that as a reader you are constantly challenged to "switch gears". Sometimes the chapter is Wishbone as a dog and sometimes he's Ichabod Crane. From a comprehension and inferring standpoint, it's amazing and the kids get so into it! I read it every year and time it for Halloween so that at our party, we can watch the movie. If you're lucky enough, grab the move! It's wonderful and follows the book to a tee. Wishbone was a phenomenal idea both as a show, as well as chapter books.

This book is scary, classical, fun, and one of the best books. It's anything you would want. This book is the best!!!
Joe, Wishbone, Samantha, and David go on a scavenger hunt to win a $100 gift certificate for Oakdale sports and games.
This reminds Wishbone of the Classic tale, The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow by: Washington Irving. Then Wishbone imagines himself as Ichabod Crane, a superstitious person in the story.
The Owner Of Oakdale sports and games.

The reason I gave this book 5 stars is because this story has lots of adventure and excitement. My favorite part in this story was when wishbone would go and tell the story when his owner was not there to say something. The real reason I liked the part were wishbone told the story because he would make the story so much more interesting then when the other charactors in the story would tell it from thier point of view. The part in the story that I did not really care for was when wishbone would talk about something really boaring instead of the story he was living.
