THE COW-PIE CHRONICLES by JAMES BUTLER Illustrated by: Lonnie Millsap is an interesting Young Readers novel. Age: 7-9, Grade Level: 2-4. A collection of witty and entertaining adventures about the author's life on the farm. I, myself, remember using cow-pies as bases when we played baseball in the field, yes, you heard it here first or second maybe. I was only a child and do know better now. But how the title brought back fun, humorous stories, of when we would visit my Grand-mother in the country. A great pick me up, filled with fun stories, and wonderful illustrations. A read any young reader would enjoy! Received for an honest review from the author and/or publisher.

My oldest frugal isn't feeling well so this book arrived at the perfect time as they have been spending a lot of time laying around this weekend.
Here is the review:
My mom gave me the book, "The Cow-Pie Chronicles" and let me just say that the book was fantabulous!! 40 pages in and someone needed stitches! LOL! That's not good!
I like how at the ending it shows Tim 47 years later!
I thought it was funny as the author referred "cow chips" to "cow poop"! I noticed the author used a lot of figurative language so that kept me interested or else I wouldn't have finished the book.
The author did a great job with the book and I would love to read more of his books! I would recommend this book to children between the ages of 8 - 12! This would be a great gift for someone too! It flowed really well and was easy to read!
My oldest read this book in a relatively short time. We would hear laughter burst out and our discussion at dinner tonight was this book. Before they read this book, they didn't even know what a cow pie was.
This would be a great book for school libraries, children's own library, and make a perfect stocking stuffer.
Thank you to the author to providing us a complimentary copy for our review and making our oldest frugal's bummer of a weekend turn into a better weekend!
