The Castaway

James Stevenson, Author Greenwillow Books $15.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-688-16965-7
In The Castaway by James Stevenson, Hubie (mouse hero of The Seaview Hotel; All Aboard; and The Stowaway) finds himself (through a series of unfortunate coincidences) on a desert island, where a native helps him overcome his fears. Humorously detailed, watercolor-and-ink cartoons play up the contrast between the pair. Set in 1937 and illustrated in a comic book$style, the volume plays up the period particulars; the droll dialogue and appealing characters add to the far-fetched and fetching fun. (Apr.)
