Gullible Gusby Maxine Rose Schur
Synopses & Reviews
Cowboy Gus is cured of a bad case of gullibility by listening to three tall tales.
Poor Cowboy Gus! He believes everything the other cowboys tell him, so he gets teased all the time. To cure his terrible case of gullibility, Gus visits Fibrock, a town full of liars. There he encounters Hokum Malarkey, who tells him three outrageous stories—while relieving him of all his money. But Gus doesnt mind. If he can honestly say the words I dont believe it,” hell be cured forever.
With extravagant humor and lively language, Maxine Schur presents three tall tales within a frame story, each one just right for the chapter-book audience. Andrew Glasss hilarious illustrations perfectly depict the hapless hero and the other larger-than-life characters that populate these wild and woolly adventures.
