Castle Waiting Vol. II #13 by Linda Medley

Castle Waiting Vol. II #13
By Linda Medley

The bowling action from last issue reaches its rollicking conclusion! Will the unorthodox bowling technique that Chess learned from Tolly enable him to scare up a victory for his team? Post-game, will Jayne finally succeed in drawing the mysterious Dr. Fell out of his shell? And is Beaky still wearing that dress? Answers to these questions, and tantalizing hints at future mysteries yet to be revealed (where did that magic trunk come from, anyway?), in this issue of Linda Medley's hit series.
