4 year old's Favorite!

The "read to me" narrator has good voices & the story is really funny. This gets read every night.

The premise of this story is that a child who lies and decieves when in a pressured situation will be rewarded. Of the numerous accidental ways the main character, Avery, can prove his smarts as a cowboy, the author chooses to show him outsmart a bad guy with a fabrication. My 5 year old picked this up right away. The main character lied to save his skin. He thought it might be okay becaue it was fibbing to a bad guy. That's what he derived from the story. It took a few minutes of explaining. Are five year olds ready for a discussion about this? In their world they need black and white. Avery needs to be taught how NOT to lie when it is inconvenient to tell the truth. Avery already has poor self confidence. His success is built on deception and manipulation. Gee, now he will be a leader. How can this possibly be a book for kids? And to top it all at the end the book the real cowboy character praises Avery for finally acting like an honest-to-goodness cowboy. That is how the author characterizes westerners or ranchers? It's deplorable. I am a New Yorker born and bred. I am not to so jaded to believe that this is the way Texas thinks. And I have not become sophisticated enough to teach my children how to lie successfully. Yuk. I want a refund. Am a dad, and I am disgusted.
