Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Although the basic theme is ethical and involves returning good for evil, the main thrust of this book is juvenile humor. The hero, Wally McDoogle, is a computer nerd whose macho father has sent him to Cowboy Roy's dude ranch camp to make him more manly. A total klutz, Wally is forever falling into piles of horse and cow manure as he stumbles through his ranch chores of riding, roping and branding. Always on hand to steal his girlfriend and outshine him in all activities is handsome, athletic Chad Diamond, who turns out to be both cruel and deceitful. Nevertheless, Wally overcomes his healthy dislike of Chad enough to save him from the horns of Satan Breath, a rampaging escaped bull. Although the writing is brisk and trendy, the jokes are heavy-handed, the plot is unlikely (riding and roping skills take more than a week to two to be learned) and includes cruelty to horses, and the resolution is trite. This is the nineteenth volume in the "Wally McDoogle" series. 2001, Tommy Nelson, $5.99. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Patricia Dole
