Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
A Western take on The Little Engine That Could, this book introduces Slim Jim Watkins, one determined cowboy. When other slouches on the ranch refuse to take on new challenges, like breaking an impossible wild horse or saving a runaway chuck wagon, you can always count on Slim Jim to do the honors. James Rice (of Cajun Night Before Christmas fame) has illustrated the bold deeds with his usual humor. Slim Jim eventually finds his brand, but the question of "why" he needs it is never addressed.
