Rango: The Movie Storybook by Justine Fontes, Ron Fontes

This is a 48-page retelling of the Paramount film starring Johnny Depp, Abigail Breslin and Bill Nighy, releasing Spring 2011. It is suitable for children aged 4 to 8 years old. An unlikely chameleon hero saves the day in this hilarious, Wild West movie storybook adaptation of Rango , Paramount's animated family feature film which releases Spring, 2011. In this 48-page retelling of the film, a pet chameleon named Rango is stranded in the desert and finds his way to Dirt, a tumbleweeds town outside Las Vegas inhabited by hundreds of gun-slinging, ten gallon hat-wearing critters. Lost and lonely, Rango bravely straps on a pair of chaps and tells a tall tale that convinces the towns folk to appoint him sheriff. Unfortunately, Rango blew into Dirt just as the town's water supply is inexplicably shut off - and the bank's reserves have been robbed. Everyone is counting on Rango to save the day and before he knows it, he embarks on the adventure of a lifetime, rounds up a posse and confronts the Wild West's outlaws as he tries to out the unlikely villain and restore water to Dirt. This slap-stick, high-noon showdown features full-colour photos, as well as the behind-the-scenes sketches and artwork used to create the special effects from the movie.
