Cowboy Christmas

Overview

Three grizzled cowboys—Dwight, Darryl, and Dub—are stuck out on the range at Christmastime, roping steers and wrestling longhorns. Reminiscing about their childhood Christmases, they try to make the cowboy camp feel festive—and it's no surprise that a cactus decorated with tin cans, and cows dressed as reindeer, don't fill them with holiday cheer! But a surprise is in store for the Circle D dudes when Santa pays a visit to the cowboy campfire!

Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review
…the text is sure to elicit a giggle, and the simple story, complete with its jingling-bells ending, is the cheery kind children seem to cling to this time of year.
—Pamela Paul
Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
Cowboys Dwight, Darryl, and Dub, out on the trail three days before Christmas, are bemoaning that "Santy Claus" will never find them out on the range. As each cowboy reminisces about a childhood Christmas memory, Cookie the Cook suggests they do that activity. The cowboys attempt to decorate a tree, but realize a cactus just isn't the right thing. They burn the cookies that are decorated with beans because they have no sprinkles. They try to turn the cows into reindeer with twigs tied to their heads and cowbells around their necks. They work their normal day on Christmas and are amazed to see Santa at their camp when they return. Astute readers will recognize the similarities between Cookie, who has a day off, and Santa. The cartoon-style illustrations, with silly expressions on the cowboys and the cows and a charming little dachshund, are the perfect accompaniment to the comical story. Short sentences, descriptive cowboy phrases (such as "darn tootin'!"), and outlandish activities make this a fun read aloud. As parents and children are experiencing the tensions of the preparations for the approaching holiday, Cowboy Christmas might be just the antidote they need. Everyone can use a dose of silly and it can certainly be found here. Reviewer: Sharon Salluzzo
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—Cowboys Dwight, Darryl, and Dub are lamenting the fact that "Santy Claus" won't be able to find them out on the range. As each cowhand recalls a fond memory from Christmases past, their trusty cook "Cookie" doles out advice on what they can do now to get in the spirit. They decorate a cactus, char some cookies, and make costumes for the cows. Feeling low-down and forgotten on Christmas day, they are surprised back at camp by Santa himself. After an evening of food, presents, and making merry, Santa disappears into the night-and Cookie soon gallops back into camp, the unsuspecting cowboys none the wiser. The lively cartoonlike illustrations go hand-in-hand with the text and will entertain and amuse young readers in the mood for a Western-style Christmas.—Madeline J. Bryant, Los Angeles Public Library
