Question ID: 759498
I am looking for a book that must be about 50 years old but that I was read when I was a child, 25 years ago! It is about a little boy who could not read so got lost on the way home as he could not read the road signs. It led to various other disasters. The boys name was Robert Francis Wetherby. Can anyone help me.

toad1-ga, Your memory was right on target, but it turns out there are quite a number of ways to spell "Weatherbee": http://www.alibris.com/search/search.cfm?qwork=5781778&wauth=Leaf%2C%20Munro&matches=11&qsort=r&cm_re=works*listing*title Robert Francis Weatherbee by Munro Leaf ...Relates the story of one hopless little boy who refuse to learn to read, write, or count, until the practical effects of ignorance catch up with him. You should be able to get yourself a copy at alibris, another bookseller, or even your local library. All the best, pafalafa-ga search strategy -- Google search on [ "robert francis wetherby OR weatherby OR weatherbee ]
