Publishers Weekly Review!


GUESS WHAT BOOK WAS JUST REVIEWED BY
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY?
COWBOY CHRISTMAS, OF COURSE!

September 10, 2012 issue of Publishers Weekly (circ: 21,000):
COWBOY CHRISTMAS

Cowboy Christmas
Rob Sanders, illus. by John Manders. Random/Golden, $10.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-375-86985-3

For three cowboys out on the range, Christmas is looking mighty lonely. “‘No presents,’ said Dwight. ‘No stockings,’ added Darryl. ‘No Santy,’ groaned Dub.” As the cowpokes reminisce about the Christmas trees, cookies, and horses dressed as reindeer of their youths, camp chef Cookie suggests they create their own versions of those traditions. The results aren’t great (“charred sugar-molasses-bean cookies” are as bad as they sound), but a surprise visitor gives the cowboys a Christmas to remember. Sanders’ humorous, clipped prose and Manders’ loose, campfire-lit artwork are just right for the story’s down-and-dirty setting. As Dwight puts it, this one’s “a rip-roarin’ good time.” Ages 2–5. (Sept.)
