PreSchool-Grade 1 A fine gaggle of cartoon ‘pokes spends a day doing what good cowboys do riding, roping, and eating beans and biscuits. The slight text is rhythmic enough for a little toe tapping and sometimes it rhymes, too. Nine cowboys and a cook are introduced with an individual simile or metaphor: “cute as a little red wagon” and “quieter than a hole in the ground.” And what good cowboy names, too! Tex, Curly, Slim, Cody, and Billy. Well, remember, they are cartoons. San Souci’s playful watercolors depict a brightly colored, cheerful bunch. Not even Slim’s falling into a cactus can hold these guys down for long. The book is pretty slim, too, but more than a few small cowboys and girls will gather round to hear it.
