Mrs. Roberto, or the Widowy Worries of the Moosepath League - by Van Reid
Mrs. Roberto, the fourth in the Moosepath Series, begins as portly, jovial Tobias Walton continues to woo the elegant and wry Phileda McCannon. Soon, however, he and his close friend, Sundry Moss, are back on the road, whereupon they become unexpected guests at the eccentric Fern Farm, unlikely counselors to a melancholy pig, and chance witnesses to a peculiar family emergency.
Meanwhile, the guileless Joseph Thump, charter member of the Moosepath League, finds in his pocket a mysterious card bearing a well-remembered name: Mrs. Dorothea Roberto. Renowned for her death-defying jumps from a hot-air balloon-in her "attractive suit of tights," with a red-white-and-blue striped parachute - that shapely lady once captured Thump's heart.
Now, certain she is in danger, he and the Moosepath League embark on a search for her from Portland's elite entertainments to its foggy, disreputable waterfront - and to the north, where a natural disaster, heroism, and kindness will bring them all together in the tiny hamlet of Iceboro. - Reviews -
