Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Remember being a kid and having to write a report for school about what you wanted to do when you grew up? Well, Ollie Jolly has the same assignment. A happy kid that always makes others laugh, Ollie is stumped as to what he wants to be. He thinks and thinks, but he never comes to a conclusion. That is, until the rodeo comes to town. The meanest bull in the land gets loose from his trailer and the rodeo clown gets hurt trying to corral him. The Brahma bull is free to roam the town, and everyone is at risk. Is this Ollie's chance to save the town and find a career? What a wonderful book�boys and girls alike will love to hear over and over again. I know it will be a favorite of my son's. 2002, WestWinds Press,
