Hank #70 - Case of the Troublesome Lady
Not only does "The Case of the Troublesome Lady" deliver the same laughs and family-friendly fun you know you can count on in each new Hank book, it ALSO brings back one of the most hilarious characters ever introduced: Miss Scamper.
You might remember her from her first appearance in "Faded Love" (Hank #5), in which she sabotages Hank's efforts to woo the beautiful Miss Beulah the Collie...and now she's back and causing even more trouble! This time, she seems bent on stirring up a big fight between Steel, the pit bull, and an unsuspecting Hank.

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.
