Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Dust off your cowboy hat, brush up on your best twang, and get set to enjoy a wickedly funny tale of the Old West. After ten years on the job (that's seventy in dog years) brave, bold Sheriff Ten-Gallon Bart is ready to turn in his star and retire. On his last day on the job, word comes from Miss Kitty, the saloon owner, that Billy the Kid, the roughest, toughest goat, is headed for Dog City. With the help of his deputies, Wild Bill Hiccup and Wyatt Burp, the chicks Dixie and Pixie, and Miss Kitty, Ten-Gallon is ready for a showdown on Main Street. What ensues is a wild melee with fur and feathers flying, meowing, clucking, and bronco busting that ultimately subdues and tames the ornery goat. At day's end, Ten-Gallon Bart turns over his badge to the new sheriff—Miss Kitty. She has proven to be the "cat's meow" and no "scaredy cat." As for Billy the Kid, he's washing the dishes at Miss Kitty's. What fun this is to read aloud. Clever word play and delightful humor capture the spirit of the Wild West. Donahue uses a variety of papers to create her collages that have dimension and texture and add a heap of whimsy. The characters names, which recall T.V. westerns of the 50s and 60s, may mean nothing to children but may illicit chuckles from their parents and definitely will get a laugh from the grandparents who read this to them. Libraries will want multiple copies. 2006, Marshall Cavendish, Ages 4 to 8.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-Bart, a dog, is looking forward to retiring as sheriff of Dog City. Then on his last day on the job, he learns that Billy the Kid (a goat) is headed toward town. Miss Kitty (a cat) implores him to stay on, promising that she and the other residents will do their part, too. Deputies Bill Hiccup and Wyatt Burp (pigs), Dixie and Pixie (chicks), and Buffalo Gal (a cow) all wait for Billy, but when he does appear, they scatter and only Bart is there to resist him. After the Kid butts Bart and chomps on his hat, the other animals come forward and help; and as the sheriff jumps on Billy's back, the old goat coughs up rope and soap, saddles and paddles, and socks and clocks until he feels a heap better, and the town settles down into being a peaceful place again. Crummel has captured the feel of the Old West, with language that is playful and sometimes rhymes. At times the text twists and turns across spreads, and the beautiful textured papers and collage characters are full of detail and humor. This is a terrific read-aloud, with lots of wordplay that may be beyond the youngest listeners, but will be enjoyed by older kids.-JoAnn Jonas, Chula Vista Public Library, San Diego, CA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Meet Ten-Gallon Bart, sheriff of Dog City, the most peaceful town in the West, because he's done a bang-up job. But Bart's tired of being brave and bold, he's ready to hang up his star and retire. Then the headline shrieks, "Billy the Kid on the Loose! Headed for Dog City on the Noon Train." Bart rounds up Miss Kitty, Wyatt Burp, Wild Bill Hiccup and Buffalo Gal, who stand behind him (literally) when he meets the train. But the minute Billy the Kid licks his lips and yells, "I'm BAA-AA-AA-D," everyone in town runs for cover except Bart. He faces the big bad goat head-on, but Billy head-butts him out cold and chomps his hat and star. The town comes to Bart's rescue and together they alter Billy's personality. The textured collages corral every bit of Wild West punnery in this laugh-out-loud romp. The large format gives full rein to Donohue's artwork to detail the wild and woolly action and close-ups, personify the animal characters and exaggerate the ten-gallon hatful of humor overall. A quick-draw of quick-witted guffaws, guaranteed to get your goat and make readers grin. (Picture book. 5-8)
