Description - Cowboy Night before Christmas by James Rice

Children will delight in reading this clever rendition of the classic poem, and coloring in James Rices celebrated artwork of two lonely cowboys, Old Saint Nicholas, and the ornery Longhorns they must try and get to pull his sleigh. Cowboy Night Before Christmas tells the story of two lonely cowboys huddled in a cold shack on Christmas eve, visited by an old man needing help to harness longhorns to his wagon. After riding out in the night and giving good cowboy assistance, they are amazed to see the man fly off with his wagon into the sky. Walking back to their shanty, they find on the floor some gifts of their own, and a message from the Jolly Old Man himself. With his characteristic humor and inviting artwork, James Rice combines the spirit of Christmas with the spirit of the range, and the result is a coloring book consistent with the quality of Rices other work, such as Cajun Night Before Christmas and Gaston The Green-Nosed Alligator.
