Okay, we admit it. We like to have fun, too. So when we saw these rollicking, humorous, action-packed books that are encouraging reluctant readers all over the country to read, we just couldn't resist! Hank the Cowdog: Head of Ranch Security. This canine is a cross between Maxwell Smart and John Wayne. Sandy Bauers of the Philadelphia Inquirer states "This mutt in disguise is adorably pretentious and frequently fumbling, yet never knowing it. Dogdom's Don Quixote. Nothing escapes his steely gaze - except, perhaps the perfectly obvious..." Filled with dry wit and down-home humor, these are books that you will enjoy reading to your children. Testimonials from parents, librarians, and teachers vouch for the ability of these books to "turn on" even the most reticent reader. We feel we must qualify our overall delight in these books, however. A couple of the books in the series include an owl character, Madam Moonshine, described as "a witchy little owl". You may want to avoid the books she appears in, so far we can only identify #2, #4 and #11. #9 has a Halloween theme. The "ghost" is a trick-or-treater, but you may want to avoid the Halloween theme.
If you can't get enough of Hank, Drover, Pete the Barncat, Slim and Sally May, check out these new adventures, available only on audio. Each CD set features a new episode in the life of Hank, brought to life by author John Erickson. And since no Hank story would be complete without the goofy songs, you can expect at least one of those masterpieces on every audio. Perfect for those long car rides!
