Cowboy Boyd and Mighty Calliope
by Lisa Moser, illustrated by Sebastiaan Van Doninck
Grades PreK-2 40 pages Random House August 2013 Hardcover    

Cowboy Boyd and his unique Ďhorse,í Calliope, ride into town looking for work at the local dude ranch. Boyd and Calliope are not traditional dude ranchers, but they work hard to prove themselves useful.

Calliopeóresembling more of a rhinoceros than a traditional horseórambles through his work with a steady KER-THUD as Sebastiaan Van Doninckís illustrations pop with humor and Old West adventure.

Boyd and Calliope cause enough trouble to tear down most of the ranch, but they prove their worth when the cows bust loose. Itís proof that even the most unlikely cowboy can be a hero.

Neither Lisa Moser nor Van Doninck has ever been on a dude ranch, but they jump in boots-first with Cowboy Boyd and Mighty Calliope.
