9780761456346: Ten-Gallon Bart Beats the Heat

It’s tongue-hanging-out hot, hot, hot in Dog City and Ten-Gallon Bart is downright miserable . . . until he sees an advertisement for chilly Alaska in Barker’s Weekly . He decides to head north, even if it means saying good-bye to his friends and taking a train, stagecoach, and boat to get there! When Bart finally arrives, he’s ready to fish, sled, and dig up some gold. But Alaska is COLD, and Bart gets in over his head when the worst storm of the century buries all but his ten-gallon hat. All is not lost when Bart’s pals follow his trail and rescue their favorite dog. Paired with the wonderful text are Dorothy Donohue’s detailed cut-paper illustrations, making this wild, wacky vacation romp the perfect package!

About the Author:

Author Susan Stevens Crummel had some firsthand experience before writing Ten-Gallon Bart. As a high school teacher in Texas, one of her extra-curricular duties was sponsoring the rodeo club. Little did she know she’d have to ride a steer in the sponsor’s rodeo. "As I clung to the beast’s gigantic horns, I decided that the following year, I’d go back to coaching the math team!" she said. Susan also likes to tell stories about her great-great uncle Harvey Doyle, an expert rider and trick roper in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show in the early 1900s. Besides collaborating with Dorothy Donohue on three other picture books, she has collaborated with her sister, Janet Stevens, on The Great Fuzz Frenzy, And the Dish Ran Away with the Spoon, Cook-a-Doodle-Doo!, and Jackalope.

Illustrator Dorothy Donohue says that her dog Bart inspired Ten-Gallon Bart and Ten-Gallon Bart and the Wild West Show. Besides the books she’s done with Susan Stevens Crummel, she has also illustrated If Frogs Made Weather by Marion Bane Bauer and Maybe Yes, Maybe No, Maybe Maybe by Susan Patron. She lives in Boulder, Colorado, with her husband James, their two children, and their two dogs.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3—Bart, the former canine sheriff of Dog City, is off on another adventure. In town, it was "scorching hot,/blistering hot,/tongue hanging-out hot..." so Bart decides to hitch a stagecoach and head north to Alaska. Things are not what he imagined them to be, with bears, moose that make him pull a dogsled, and a snowstorm that buries him up to his ten-gallon hat. His friends in hot Dog City hear of his icy predicament and come to his rescue, taking him home. Bart's cowboy drawl is fun to read aloud, but one might have to explain some of the references to younger children. The detailed, textured-paper illustrations give the art a three-dimensional look and make Bart extra lively.—Carrie Rogers-Whitehead, Kearns Library, UT
