Tammi Sauer Retrospective

Week of June 12: A Week with Tammi Sauer
Friday, June 17—A Tammi Sauer Retrospective

What a great week we’ve had picking Tammi Sauer’s creative brain. I hope you’ll now go out and pick up a Tammi Sauer book or two and that you’ll look forward to her upcoming books. Take a peek at Tammi’s work in today’s post.

Cowboy Camp (Sterling, 2005)

Who hasn’t felt like the odd man out? Avery is that guy in Cowboy Camp. Avery tries hard to fit in at camp . . . he tries to eat like a cowboy, ride like a cowboy, and rope like a cowboy. Unfortunately, he can’t stand the grub, is allergic to horses, and gets rope burns. But when a bully threatens all the campers, Avery proves his mettle in his own unique way.

Chicken Dance (Sterling, 2009)

Marge and Loa are chickens on a mission to win tickets for the Elvis Poultry Show. But their toughest competition—a pack of menacing ducks—sneers that “all a chickens can do is bawk, flap, and shake.” Can our two feisty chicks show those quackers how to rock ‘n’ roll the barnyard? A big surprise awaits the girls and the rest of the talent show participants. (HINT: He hasn’t left the building!)
