Publisher Comments:

This lift-the-flap, fold-out book contains nearly 50 flaps to lift, plus a unique rodeo event on every brilliantly colored spread: Grand Entry Parade, Saddle Bronc Riding, Steer Wrestling, Cutting Competition, Mutton Busting, Calf Scramble, Barrel Racing, Calf Roping, Bull Riding, and a Square Dance with a cowboy band to round out the fun. Munro's attention to detail leaves nothing out. There are explanations of the rodeo events on every page plus the interactive flaps to highlight the action of each event. Wild broncs and bucking bulls will leap across the pages of this colorful, engaging book, and young readers will be enticed to lift the flaps on each page over and over. Roxie is the acclaimed author/illustrator of 27 books for children (including Mazescapes; Amazement Park; The Inside-Outside Books of New York City New York Times Best Illustrated Award], Washington DC, Texas, London, Paris, and Libraries; Feathers, Flaps & Flops; Doors; Gargoyles, Girders & Glass Houses; The Great Bridge-Building Contest; Ranch; Wild West Trail Ride Maze, Circus; and Mazeways (2007). Roxie has been an artist from the age of six, when she won first prize in a country-wide contest for a painting of a bowl of fruit. She has supported herself all her life on her art, at one point freelancing in Washington DC as a television courtroom artist. Clients included CBS, the Washington Post, and the Associated Press. She also creates oils, watercolors, prints, and drawings, primarily cityscapes, which are exhibited widely in the U.S. in galleries and museums. Roxie's work is in numerous private, public, and corporate collections. Fourteen of her paintings have appeared as covers of The New Yorker.
