Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
...a playful tone throughout...packs plenty of appeal...
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
On his first trip out of the corral, Gulbis rustles up a rootin'-tootin' debut. Cowgirl Rosie dotes on her pets, a quintet of baby bison whose shenanigans around the ranch keep her "plumb worn out." Alas, on a trip into town to visit Sheriff Joe, the critters begin disappearing one by one, until all have vanished ("Oh, calamity!"). The sheriff suggests they "saddle up and hit the trail before it gets dark," and soon the pair encounter Snakey Jake, with a sack of flour flung on his back. Demanding to see the sack's contents, Rosie finds five white baby bison ("But these aren't my babies") and promptly bursts into tears. The waterworks wash away the flour, of course, revealing the missing pets, and when the varmint Jake tries to vamoose, Rosie snags him with her lasso. Gulbis shoehorns a wagonload of Western lingo into his text, while his watercolors, rendered in a sunny Southwestern palette, further underscore the setting. He strikes a playful tone throughout, from the scene where Snakey Jake slyly pilfers the bison from their unsuspecting owner to the celebratory cactus pie baked by Sheriff Joe, and plucky Rosie herself packs plenty of appeal. Ages 4-8. (Mar.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
Cowgirl Rosie takes Bigwig, Bonnie, Beefy, Butch and Baby B everywhere. But one day on her way to visit Sheriff Joe, her five mischievous black baby bison disappear, one by one. Rosie and Joe are determined to find them. When Sneaky Snakey Jake passes by with a bulging sack of flour, the Sheriff demands to see the contents. Lo and behold, there are five white baby bison in Jake's flour sack. But Rosie's flood of tears washes over the white bison and reveals that she actually has found her babies. As Jake tries to escape, Cowgirl Rosie lassos the bad guy and makes the world a safer place. Rosie and the babies celebrate at Joe's with some of his delicious cactus pie. Then, with the trusty Sheriff looking on, Cowgirl Rosie tucks her babies safely in their new baby bison buggy and they roll off into the sunset. Gulbis' illustrations use color to convey joy, fear and comfort. His extensive use of Western jargon gives the book cowpoke character. 2001 (orig. 2000), Little Brown, $12.95. Ages 4 to 6.

PreS-Gr 2-In a leap of reason fit only for silly tall tales out of the Wild West, Cowgirl Rosie is responsible for the care of five baby bison-Bigwig, Bonnie, Beefy, Butch, and Baby B. As with any big family, the youngsters keep Rosie busy. On a trip into town to visit Sheriff Joe, one by one, the bison disappear. "Oh calamity!" With the help of the sheriff, the young protagonist searches high and low for her babies. The two meet up with Snakey Jake, who coincidentally has five white bison in a flour sack. It is only when Rosie's unhappy tears fall like rain upon the flour-covered animals that their true identities are uncovered. With her handy lasso, Rosie thwarts Jake's attempt at escape, and the happy cowgirl is a local hero. For her reward, Sheriff Joe gives her a brand-new five-bison baby buggy. The hilarious language and predictability of this tale make it a fun choice to read aloud. The pace of the story is quick, and the vibrant illustrations convey not only the campy silliness of the story, but also incorporate traditional images of the West. A fun-filled addition to any group read-aloud, though certainly enjoyable one-on-one as well.-Piper L.
