Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

andlt;b andgt;This playful picture book from Jan Thomas features a courageous cowboy who croons to his cows before bedand#8212;with just a andlt;i andgt;fewandlt;/iandgt; fearful interruptions.andlt;/bandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Join the Brave Cowboy as he tries to sing his young calf pals to sleep on a dark, dark nightand#8212;EEEEEEEK! IS THAT A HUGE HAIRY SPIDER OVER THERE? Oh, itand#8217;s just a flower? Well then, back to the lullaby.andlt;BRandgt;andnbsp;andnbsp;andnbsp;andnbsp; No one does preschool humor with Jan Thomasand#8217;s wit, verve, and bold, snappy color. And her Brave Cowboy and his silly, interrupted lullaby are sure to get andlt;iandgt;everybodyandlt;/iandgt; singingand#8212;before they head off into cozy dreamlandand#8230;.

Review:

"Those who know and love Thomas will guess that the title of her latest is a clue that something is afoot. In this case, it's the word 'Brave,' because the titular cowboy is anything but. The little cows under his care (clearly the same breed as the goofy bovines of 2011's Is Everyone Ready for Fun?) are ready to hit the hay under the stars. But each time the cowboy starts his lullaby (the sappy and monotonous lyrics of which will have kids and grownups giggling), he mistakes something innocuous for something scary, shouts 'Eeeeek!' (instead of 'goodnight'), and has to restart the song. But Brave Cowboy isn't the only one to emit an 'Eeeeek' that night, proving that sometimes a lullaby is all a cowboy needs to tame a terror. Like Thomas's other stories, this one is ostensibly as uncomplicated as her big, loopy cartooning. But it's actually a little gem of sketch comedy, drawing on a deep understanding of how timing, repetition, and modulation can make a story both fun to read aloud and a guaranteed laugh-getter, time and time again. Ages 3 — 5. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
