Review:

Ages 5-8 Tornado Slim is in for an adventure when a coyote asks him to deliver a letter to the sheriff of Fire Gulch City. The coyote sees that he s a bit hesitant and sweetens the deal by giving Slim his special cowboy hat. The young man travels from town to town, and, as he does, floods, tornadoes, fire, and bandits seem to follow him. He quickly learns that his new hat is not the run-of-the-mill variety; it allows him to avert these catastrophes. An even bigger surprise awaits him in Fire Gulch City as he becomes the new sheriff. Full of cowboy lingo such as pard ner and sarsaparilla and food such as smoked ribs and five-alarm chili, this book paints a fun picture of the Wild West. The detail-oriented watercolor illustrations add to the adventure. Appealing as a read-aloud or as independent reading, Tornado Slim will have youngsters laughing up a storm. --Sarah Polace, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Parma, OH, School Library Journal

Ages 5-8 Tornado Slim s far-fetched story starts with coyote s request that an important message be delivered to the sheriff of Fire Gulch City, and he gives Slim a mysterious cowboy hat. Little does Slim understand the significance of each of these two plot devices, but he soon finds out. Whether it s a dam bursting, a destructive twister, a raging fire, or desperate robbers, Slim is beset by one emergency after another. But all s well as Slim saves the day with that remarkable hat. Folks will find out-sized fun and ten-gallon laughs in both the frenetic paintings and the rollicking cowboy lingo in this action-packed tall tale. Author-illustrator Bryan Langdo s prose is meant to be read aloud, preferably with an ice-cold sarsaparilla. Be sure to get a great-looking cowboy hat of your own and a tin sheriff s badge to do it up proud. This picture book will find a welcome home in all tall tale collections. Lonna Pierce, School Librarian, MacArthur Elementary School, Binghamton, New York. Highly Recommended. --Library Media Connection, January/February Advanced Reviews
