The Wee Musketeers by Robert Bresloff is book one of the Get “Into” the Classics Series. Remember back to those long summer days of pretend, throw in an eccentric Grandpa, and his beloved classics that transport you into the stories and you are sure to have an adventure on your hands.
The use of costumes throughout the tale would make this a great story to read to an elementary class and have a dress up day or weave a theme around it. There are so many teaching opportunities available in this story not to mention just the pure fun of pretending. Bresloff effectively grasps readers from all levels whether they are academic, athletic, artistic or love to be in the kitchen. He has a character for you. You find yourself picking a musketeer and rooting for them throughout the entire story. This is a wonderful spin on a classic. (reviewed by M.Free)
