The book has its crrepy moments, but overall this is one of the funniest. Like USA Today says, Hank the Cowdog is the best family entertainment in years.
I recomebd this book to everyone bexause its uhmmm.....AWSOME!!"
A good story teller is a wonderful gift to his audience. The Hank the Cowdog tapes are such a gift. Mr Erickson's tapes are made for children but just as pleasurable for adults. There is a refreshing lack of condescension. Listeners not familiar with ranch life may find themselves confused at times, but catching on is not hard. Some of the dialog is reminiscent of the Marx Brothers rather than more recent childrens literature. So what is wrong with that! The Marx Brothers are classics and children the age these books are slanted toward love silly stuff. Hank is no heroic paragon; he is a very 'doggy' dog a coward, a bully a glutton and a hero at the same time. He is closely related to the 'Coyote Tales' of the Navajos complete with appropriate grossness. Remember, kids have been known to be fond of grossness. The music which accompanies these tapes is as funny as the story. There is very fine 'old timey' background music as well as catchy songs. I would say that there is a real mud puddle,(rather than reservoir), of talent up there in the Texas Panhandle.
