The installation will be confused by the lack of a shell.dll file. Merely creating an empty file will allow the installation to proceed. However, I recommend you find a native shell.dll in the event that the game actually needs it for something.
The game will likely give an error about needed 256 colors. This is a known issue in wine. A workaround is available here.
Unfortunately, on my computer the game shows very odd colors and crashes horribly when I click on the image inside of the book.
