Children have always loved the wild west with its stories of heroics, wilderness, and adventures. So why not go west?
My children absolutely adore this book. The images are fun, bright, and inspire their imaginations. The ideas are whimsical and invite the children to create their own magical western experience.
My daughter especially likes the images personifying the hats and chili peppers.
The words flow well with the images, however fantastical the ideas are, such as cuckoo hats and rocket boots. They tell of a west that we all know but add an interesting flare to the concept that I can only call unique.
As for myself, I am at a crossroads. I love the bright, inviting images but feel like there too much going on on each page. The words don't flow together well at times and at other times they very nearly rhyme.
In the end, my child like this book and I find nothing wrong with the content.
I won my copy on Goodreads Giveaways and have permission from the author to use the image above.
