The little boy, Tommy, reminds me of Calvin from the ‘Calvin and Hobbs’ comic strip by Bill Watterson because of his mischievousness. It is such a fun book to read!

Now let’s move on to the highlight of this blog posting.
Short description of Super Cowboy Rides:
Meet six-year-old Tommy Johnson, Super Cowboy and Super Story-teller.
- Want to build a box to capture wild cats that roam the farm?
- How about tips on catching a greased pig at the fair, or teaching a stubborn lamb to avoid being trampled by angry milk cows?
From the first paragraph, when Tommy explains why a boy needs a dog for a pet instead of a cat, he wins us over with his down-to-earth and humorous view of the world. Once Tommy begins school, however, things get complicated. This is a book even reluctant readers will enjoy. Boys, girls, and adults have all loved this book.
Jack Weyland -Author of Charlie and other Y.A. novels writes, “Super Cowboy Rides reminds me of when I was a boy and we would visit my grandparents’ farm in Utah where my cousins would try, in a loving way, to kill me. It has a ring of authenticity that could only be accomplished by growing up on a farm or ranch. I loved each chapter, but once I reached the end of the book I realized I had been taught some important lessons. This is a book that boys will love as well as girls who look for the good in everyone.”
And…I have to share one more review by Stephanie Ashcraft (New York Times best selling author)
This is the perfect family trip ‘read out loud’ book. You are on the edge of your seat the entire time wondering what this little cowboy will do next! We laughed so hard, and my 8-year old kept begging me to not stop reading. This book reels you in from the first page. We will be adding this fantastic book to our home library.
