Kid Sheriff came into the town of Drywater Gulch where he helped catch robbers! The people in the town thought that the robbers were toads, but the whole time kid sheriff said the culprits were dinosaurs. This made the toads angry because they wanted to receive credit for their robberies. They were so furious that they went into the jail to see the dinosaurs that were receiving credit, but just as they went in, kid sheriff locked the toads in the jail. Kid Sheriff had tricked the toads, and now they were caught!

This is good modern fantasy because the book flows in a way that makes sense. The author made sure that specific details were followed throughout the whole book. The characters definitely follow a fantasy description. First of all toads can not be robbers, a kid won't be a sheriff, and dinosaurs are no longer alive, but the characters are great for fantasy because they have personalities that are realistic.

THIS is my classes favorite picture book reader of all time! So funny and smart in how it utilizes a little bit of dinosaur knowledge and cunning to thwart that nasty band of cattle kissing no goods, the Toad gang. ( )

Kid Sheriff and the Terrible Toads is a story about the west and a sheriff who needs to catch some bad guys. The sheriff catches the criminals by blaming the crimes on dinosaurs. This wild story introduces dinosaur vocabulary and draws readers in through the epic plot line.
