Synopsis

Rango: A Hero at Last by Annie Auerbach

This book is suitable for children aged 4 to 8 years old. An unlikely chameleon hero accidentally proves his mettle in this hilarious beginning reader adaptation of Rango , Paramount's animated family feature film which releases Spring 2011. In this beginning reader adaptation 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. Not everyone buys his story though, especially a bully of a gila monster named Bad Bill who challenges Rango to a classic Western showdown. Before either creature can draw guns, the dreaded Red Tailed Hawk appears - and he's got his own lunch plans for Rango. By hook and by crook (and with a heap of luck), Rango manages to fell the Hawk, solidifying his Clint Eastwood-esque cowboy reputation. This slap-stick, high-noon spotlight on scene from the movie features full-colour photos plus some never-before-seen sketches and artwork used to create the special effects for the film.
