"This is a story that begs to be read aloud with a twang drawl, perhaps as part of a Western or farm-themed story time. Plumb funny, fer sure."
—Kirkus, STARRED Review
"A first purchase for most libraries."
—School Library Journal, STARRED Review
"Not so fast, pardner! Turns out Cowpoke Clyde is better at lassoing cattle than wrangling his flea-ridden friend Dawg into the tub. Austin's exaggeratedly slim Clyde and highly animated animals should round up even reluctant readers."
—New York Times
“[Mortensen] offers here another humorous, rhyming picture book, this one filled with clever language and anticipatory page turns that will delight young listeners …This makes a good choice for story hours or one-on-one sharing.”
