PreS-Gr 2-In a leap of reason fit only for silly tall tales out of the Wild West, Cowgirl Rosie is responsible for the care of five baby bison-Bigwig, Bonnie, Beefy, Butch, and Baby B. As with any big family, the youngsters keep Rosie busy. On a trip into town to visit Sheriff Joe, one by one, the bison disappear. "Oh calamity!" With the help of the sheriff, the young protagonist searches high and low for her babies. The two meet up with Snakey Jake, who coincidentally has five white bison in a flour sack. It is only when Rosie's unhappy tears fall like rain upon the flour-covered animals that their true identities are uncovered. With her handy lasso, Rosie thwarts Jake's attempt at escape, and the happy cowgirl is a local hero. For her reward, Sheriff Joe gives her a brand-new five-bison baby buggy. The hilarious language and predictability of this tale make it a fun choice to read aloud. The pace of the story is quick, and the vibrant illustrations convey not only the campy silliness of the story, but also incorporate traditional images of the West. A fun-filled addition to any group read-aloud, though certainly enjoyable one-on-one as well.-Piper L. Nyman, Fairfield/Suisun Community Library, Fairfield, CA
