Description - Cowpoke Clyde and Dirty Dawg by Lori Mortensen
Cowpoke Clyde's house was completely clean he'd even shooed off the horseflies: "Then right behind his cookin' pot, he spied one thing he'd plumb forgot: ol'Dawg, his faithful, snorin' friend, all caked with mud from end to end." Needless to say, Dawg wakes up and runs. The chase that follows with page-turn surprises makes for a hilarious shaggy-dog story involving fleas, a hog, bribery, cats, deception, and a mule. The rhyming stanzas are pitch-perfect, Texas-style, and plumb near cry out to be read aloud. Austin's expressive acrylic and coloured-pencil caricatures of Cowpoke Clyde and his menagerie are priceless. A story time shoo-in! AGES: 4-8 AUTHOR: Lori Mortensen is an award-winning author.
