REIT, Seymour , adapt. Travel & Adventure . illus. by Ernie Colón & Richard Rockwell. ISBN 978-0-8368-7930-8 . ea vol: 56p. (Bank Street Graphic Novels Series). World Almanac Library . 2007. PLB $29.27. LC number unavailable. Gr 4 Up Each book includes adaptations of three classic stories that were first printed in Boys' Life . Much-abbreviated versions of The Hound of the Baskervilles, Macbeth , and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow appear in Murder. Travel includes The Travels of Marco Polo, Moby-Dick , and Gulliver's Travels . Each one is only about 15 pages long and moves quickly, with little narrative to provide context beyond the dialogue and images. Because of this, some of the selections may be confusing to readers unfamiliar with the original works. The artwork is action-filled and attention-grabbing. Any bloodshed in Murder takes place "offstage." Images are well chosen. Lady Macbeth's bloodstained hands and Banquo's ghost are sufficient to create a sense of horror and suspense. The colors and type help to set the mood for each tale. Brief biographical information about the classic writers includes an account of how the work was received during its time. There is at least one inaccuracy: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle could hardly have died before he was born. Overall, these volumes are satisfying additions. Neala Arnold, St. Francis Elementary School, MN
