Cowboy Boyd and Mighty Calliope (Library Binding)
— Judy is our lead children's book buyer at Tattered Cover
'No doubt about it, folks knew Boyd and Calliope
were different from the moment they rode onto the Double R Ranch.'
Cowboy Boyd and Calliope the Rhino are searching for a place in the West
that they could call home. They stop at Rancher Rosie's, and she
gives them a work trial which goes badly. But Cowboy Boyd has 'a real
strong belief in Calliope' who really tries her best (ker-thud!).
Ultimately Calliope wins over the ranch hands with her friendliness and
positive attitude. I've got 'a real strong belief' in this charming, funny, happy, life-affirming, great read-aloud story. " ~Judy
