Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Trina Heidt
Have you ever wanted to be a cowboy? If you have, this is the perfect book for you. You will learn what cowboys wear, what they look like, why they hardly have time for riding bikes and much, much more. Saddle up and pay attention! Tucker's amusing verse and Westcott's entertaining pictures will guide you along your way.

Kirkus Reviews
Tucker and Westcott (Do Pirates Take Baths?, 1994, not reviewed) turn to the cowboy life in rollicking verse and pictures. Each spread answers a headlined question (e.g., "Where do cowboys live?"); the text imparts minimal information while the illustrations take a more humorous approach. The answer to "what happens after the round-up?" explains that the cattle are driven "along an old trail," while the map shows "where the round-up starts" and a dotted line that wends its way around Big Rocks and Little Rocks, through a Great Forest where a couple of cows stray, fords a Stream, crosses a Very Dry Desert, circles a rattlesnake, slips past some bad guys, and heads straight into the Saloon in the next town. While children will enjoy the fluff, they won't come away with much to chew on from this heapin' helpin' of Old West nonsense.
