Review: The Prince and the Pooch (Adventures of Wishbone #3)

User Review  - Twyla - Goodreads

My favorite part was when joe didnt have to be a coach any longer. The worst part was when noone liked joe as a coach. My favorite character was wishbone. The worst character was the person who didnt like joe. Auryn 10 years old, 2014 Read full review

Review: The Prince and the Pooch (Adventures of Wishbone #3)

User Review  - Noelle Walsh - Goodreads

This was a really good book. Not only did it bring on the nostalgia (as I loved watching Wishbone as a kid), I found I was curious as the the original work, The Prince and The Pauper, a book I'm still trying to find. This book is certainly worth reading, though. Read full review
