Overview


A little boy who doesn't fit in at camp finds out just how valuable his non-cowboy skills can be. Every child will relate to the message, the humor, and the deliciously playful illustrations. Giddyup, kids, and gallop right over to read this rootin' tootin' tale of an unlikely would-be hero. Avery's at camp, trying hard to saddle up and master his lasso, but he's just not like the other cowboys. He's allergic to the horses and can't stand the grub. But when a bully threatens all the campers, Avery proves his mettle in his own unique way. Young readers will have lots of fun with the story's lively language and wildly humorous pictures.

In this NOOK kids Read to Me book, children can choose to hear the story read aloud, tap to enlarge text and pinch & stretch to zoom in on pictures.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Young Avery arrives at Cowboy Camp feeling self-conscious and inept. He is allergic to horses and beans, he can't twirl a lasso, and his name is all wrong. In the end, though, it's Avery who outsmarts Mean Black Bart during a midnight confrontation and becomes a hero. The text is concise, and the print is large and bold. The illustrations are funny and colorful, particularly the scene in which Avery spits out a mouthful of beans. The adult characters have exaggerated features, particularly the villain, who has a scary chin and a nose to rival that of any witch. This book will be appreciated by any child who has shared Avery's concerns about not fitting in with a group.-Polly L. Kotarba, Gordon Elementary School Library, Bellaire, TX Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
