From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3-In this tall tale of the Wild West, scrawny Archie Featherspoon proves that brains are better than brawn. The boy lives with his bustling and capable Ma on their Texas farm, tinkering with inventions in the barn more often than doing his chores. When a twister plops him down in Trigger Toe, the townsfolk assume he's the new sheriff, sent just in time to protect them from Buster and the Bully Boys. His clever inventions help him outwit the outlaws, save the town, get him home, finish his chores, and even give his mother a birthday present. Readers who like action and adventure mixed with humor and hyperbole will enjoy meeting this likable underdog. He is helped by a supporting cast of stock characters, like the people who lock themselves safely in jail while sending him off to meet the outlaws: "`Remember,' they said, `we're all behind you.'" This beginning chapter book has more white space, bigger print, and fewer pages than some of the others in the series.
