Awful in every which way. This review is of the short story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" only. This is the first story I've read by Washington Irving, and it'll most likely be my last. I grew up watching the Disney cartoon "The Legend of Sleep Hollow" from 1958, which was narrated by Bing Crosby. It was the only thing that helped me envision this story, as I found the writing very bland and needlessly wordy. It's as if the author just liked seeing his own words on paper. I found the narration to skip, rendering it muddled, and I was at a loss if it was an unseen narrator, the author himself, or whomever. I didn't get a sense of any character, and the horseman was nearly nonexistent. I can see why the 1999 movie "Sleepy Hollow" with Johnny Depp needed much revamping, as this story is very mind numbing. I do not recommend.
Legend of Sleepy Hollow (Super Adventures of Wishbone) 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.Very Good Book! 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.
