9781561454518: The Last Cowboys

Grandfather sets off from England to America on an exciting expedition to the Wild, Wild West. He is accompanied by Roo, a remarkable dog with a vivid imagination, and a golf cart full of equipment. The intrepid travelers are in search of Roo s grandfather, rumored to be living among cowboys following a successful movie career.

Grandfather and Roo endure a grueling plane flight before they land in Hollywood. After a movie studio tour, they embark on a bus trip that ends abruptly with the two of them dumped by the side of the road. The pair hitchhike their way through the Grand Canyon and trek over rough terrain. Finally they reach One Horse Town, which has been overrun by a gang of lawless horses. After a narrow nighttime escape and chilly nights camping in caves, Roo is joyfully reunited with Old Blue, his grandfather.

Cleverly told through Grandfather s affectionate letters written to a grandchild back home, THE LAST COWBOYS is another hilarious, original adventure featuring this immensely charming twosome. Horse s winsome pen-and-ink illustrations perfectly complement this fanciful tale that will delight young and old alike.

About the Author:

Harry Horse wrote and illustrated many books for children, including the popular Little Rabbit picture books and the novels The Last Polar Bears and The Last Castaways. He was also a political cartoonist for several national newspapers in the United Kingdom. He died in 2007.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2–4—An unnamed British man takes his rambunctious dog to America to find her long-lost grandfather. Roo claims that he was in movies and later belonged to a cowboy, so the man arranges to visit Hollywood and a place called Cowboy Town in hopes of finding the pooch. Instead, as his letters home to his grandchild relate, the trip is a string of disasters. First Roo misbehaves on the plane, and then the travelers discover that the Greyhound bus tour they booked is actually a ride on a bus full of greyhounds on their way to a race. Nevertheless, the two continue their search at sites such as Rabbit World (an amusement park) and the Grand Canyon. Roo's antics escalate at each stop, culminating with her being named sheriff of One Horse Town. Humorous black-and-white line drawings add dimension to the characters the pair meet along the way. A map helps readers follow the journey, though not all of the sites mentioned in the story are included. While adults may tire of the Old West stereotypes, young chapter-book readers are unlikely to notice.—Jackie Partch, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR
