Saving Sweetnessby Diane Stanley, G. Brian Karas
When Sweetness, the ittiest bittiest orphan in Ms. Sump's orphanage, runs away, it's up to the sheriff to find her and bring her back. The only problem is, Sweetness doesn't want to be saved. She'd rather take her chances with Coyote Pete, the nastiest desperado in the Wild West, than face going back to Ms. Sump. So each time the sheriff catches up to her, she runs away again! How the sheriff finally finds a way to save Sweetness-for good-makes for a hilariously heartwarming story that's sure to please.

It helps a whole heap if you spent about 30 years of your natural life in Texas, or know someone who did. This goodhearted shurruff and darlin' little sweetness will warm your heart right up. Youngins under four most likely won't git all the funny parts, unless thur real smart a'course.
All children will love this book. Sweetness is a very smart and resourceful little girl who will do anyting not to go back to the orphanage. Everyone will laugh at this book both adults and children alike!
