Overview


Originally published in 1961, Joan Walsh Anglund's Cowboy and His Friend sold 150,000 copies in four languages. Now Andrews McMeel offers a new edition of this timeless story, complete with the author's original illustrations, as a follow-up to our version of The Brave Cowboy, which sold nearly 250,000 copies worldwide when it was first published in 1959.This charming tale about a little cowboy and his imaginary friend, Bear, is illustrated with Anglund's endearing drawings, authentically rendered as they appeared in the original publication, with the boy's "real" world drawn in black ink and his imaginary bear drawn in brown. The story follows the adventures of the adorable little cowboy and his constant companion as they go ice-skating, play football, and take a walk. The characters were inspired by the author's own son, who had a bear as an imaginary friend when he was a young boy.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
The follow-up to Brave Cowboy, Cowboy and His Friend by Joan Walsh Anglund, first published in 1961, features the eponymous hero and his imaginary companion. Throughout, lively b&w line drawings depict the child; "Bear" appears in brown. The tiny trim size adds to the appeal. (Mar.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
