About the Author:

Author Eric A. Kimmel is well known for the tales he has retold from around the world. Some of his best-known titles are Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins (a Caldecott Honor book), Gershon’s Monster, Anansi and the Talking Melon, and The Runaway Tortilla. A former professor of children’s literature, he lives in Portland, Oregon.

Illustrator Vincent Nguyen was born in Houston, Texas, and later moved to New York City, where he received a BFA from the School of Visual Arts. He has illustrated a number of picture books, including Jungle Bullies by Steven Kroll and Whoosh Went the Wind! by Sally Derby. He has also worked as an artist for animated feature films, such as Robots and Ice Age 2. He lives in New York City.

From Booklist:

On her way to the rodeo, where she thinks she’ll have a good shot to win the calf-roping contest, Little Britches runs across a series of rattlesnakes who threaten to eat her right up. At each encounter, she bargains with the rattlers, offering her new hat, chaps, boots, and so on until she’s left with only her long johns to wear to the rodeo. She figures everyone will laugh at her and decides to just go home, but then spots all the snakes showing off their newfound clothes to each other. Bickering ensues, and the snakes wind up swallowing each other so that nothing’s left except Little Britches’ whole wardrobe. Kimmel’s little yarn makes good use of early counting concepts and introduces some western lingo in a leisurely repetitive structure. This will make for a swell read-aloud, highlighted by the repeated threat Little Britch-ch-ches, we’re gonna s-s-swaller you up! Nguyen’s artwork complements the glib silliness as the snakes try to fill out the little girl’s clothing. Grades K-2. --Ian Chipman
