Silly book

I thought this might be a funny book! But Conrad and the Cowgirl Next Door is written by Denette Fretz and is illustrated by Gene Barretta. It is published by Zonderkidz. was just a bit too silly for me or any of my little sisters  under 12. First the art work turned me of then the story which kind of just ended.

“I hear that becoming a cowboy can be dangerous. Especially if you don’t know the rules. I thought this would be funny but the characters did not make me laugh.
It’s a good thing Conrad brought his Mega Ultimate Extreme First Aid Kit to Uncle Clint’s ranch because learning how to be a cowboy turns out to be a lot harder—and more painful—than he thought.  All he seems to do is  bandage himself and learn very few lessons. Conrad has a lot to learn – including don’t squat with spurs on and never wave your red sweatshirt at a bull.  I was disappointed  that there was not enough cowboy feel to the book . Supposed to be about loving your neighbor but it turns out the  " mean" little girl shows love  and Conrad learns little.

*I received a copy of Conrad and the Cowgirl Next Door in exchange for my honest opinion.*
