Leroy Ninker Saddles Up: Tales from Deckawoo Drive, Volume One - Kate Dicamillo, Chris Van Dusen

Leroy Ninker is tired of sitting idly by taking notes from the cowboy westerns he watches while working at the local drive-in. He knows deep down that he is meant to be a cowboy, meting out justice and maintaining order. He even has a ten-gallon hat, a lasso, and boots. But Leroy is missing one essential element—a horse. It’s Leroy’s lucky day, because in this first volume of his adventures, a neighbor happens to be giving away a horse. With a “yippie-i-oh,” Leroy Ninker Saddles Up (Candlewick, $12.99) and is ready to fulfill his destiny. However, it takes a lot to keep his new horse, Maybelline, happy, including loads of sweet-talking charm and spaghetti. Author Kate DiCamillo and illustrator Chris Van Dusen (Mercy Watson) are back again for a whole new set of tales, with familiar faces that readers know and love, and new cowboy hijinks sure to entertain.  Ages 6-9.
