Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leila Toledo
A robbery takes place in Sarah's hometown of Cactus Junction. She tries to volunteer to help the sheriff find the robbers, but the sheriff won't accept Sarah as a deputy because he feels that she is too young. She and her mischievous friend, Billy the ghost, must strike out on their own in search of the villains. They spot two hairy "women" carrying a huge bag. Could these be their robbers? There's lots of fun for early readers in this "I Can Read Chapter Book."
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3After the sheriff and his posse leave Cactus Junction to search for some bank robbers, lasso-toting Sarah (a little girl) and Billy (a ghost) discover they have work to do. The thieves are still in town and disguised as women. Young readers will enjoy Sarah and Billy's humorous misadventures with the crooks. Eventually, Sarah's planning and Billy's practical jokes (and invisibility) work for them; they deliver "Mabel" and "Doris" to the sheriff tied-up in a most unusual manner. The facial expressions, funny caricatures, and Old West setting enhance this fun-filled story. A great book combination includes reading aloud Diane Stanley's Saving Sweetness (Putnam, 1996) to aspiring young cowpokes and having them read Billy the Ghost and Me.Gale W.
