Overview

Ten-year-old Tim Slinger and his nine-year-old sister Dana face danger, excitement, and heartbreak in this story of life on a modern family farm. Though Tim (aka Poop Slinger) and "Devil" Dana engage in intense sibling rivalry that gets them both into hilarious situations with barns, ropes, farm animals, city-kid cousins, and each other, they are soon forced to confront unwanted changes when the farm is lost. As they face an alien world in town, Dana readily adapts to a new way of life while Tim resists, sending the siblings down separate but intersecting paths. Although an unexpected encounter puts Tim back into familiar surroundings, will life ever be the same? This fresh and humorous account of modern rural living brings a unique approach to the time-tested theme of families and communities coming together under challenging circumstances.

    THE COW-PIE CHRONICLES by JAMES BUTLER Illustrated by: Lonnie Mi

    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!
