I Want to be a Cowgirl

In the second of the Jeanne Willis / Tony Ross books to hit our stack this week, a young girl dreams of life on the prairies in "I Want to be a Cowgirl". Pinching her dad's hat, and riding her faithful steed (the scrapyard dog), the girl yee-hahs and woo-hoos her way through the 'wild wild west' of her imagination.

Again a charming book with plenty of excellent visual gags to laugh at and enjoy (I particularly liked the fact that the girl snips a nifty pair of chaps out of the fluffy living room carpet, then in another frame you see them hastily sewn back in!).

Great stuff for aspiring cowgirls everywhere.

Charlotte's best bit - The cloud shapes

Daddy's favourite bit - The girl's dad whooping and hollering at the end of the book

Rating - 4 out of 5 stars
