Young Whit and the Traitor's Treasure
When the idea for a Young Whit book series was announced, I wasn't sure if it was a good idea. After all, one of the best things about Mr. Whittaker is that his past has remained a bit of a mystery throughout the show, with information slowly provided to us in morcels . We may discover in one episode, for instance, he dreamed of becoming a screenwriter, and, in another, that he once secretly worked for the government, and, in another, that he stole Jack Allen's girlfriend in college. The number of surprising revelations about his past seem endless. So, will a series of books about Whit's early life take away opportunities for the show to provide us with surprising information? In other words, do we really need such a large portion of his life literally spelled out to us?
