A girl and her dog are happier than two buttons on a new shirt―until her new baby brother shows up. A rip-roarin' sibling tale for storytime
★ "A rootin'-tootin' tale that won't fail to quick-draw a smile." ―Booklist, STARRED REVIEW
"Giddy-up, big sisters " ―Kirkus Reviews
Rodeo Red and her hound dog Rusty are happier than two buttons on a new shirt--until Sideswiping Slim shows up.
Red is sure that anyone who hollers that much will be hauled to the edge of town and told to skedaddle, but her parents seem smitten with the new addition to the family. So when that scallywag sets his eye on Rusty, Rodeo Red had better figure out a way to save her best friend in the whole world. Can a cowgirl make a bargain with a varmint?
Author Maripat Perkins pairs Old West lingo with big laughs to tell this laugh-out-loud sibling story. Adorable illustrations by Caldecott Honor winner Molly Idle add to the fun.
