Synopsis

Varmints by Andy Hirsch

Opie and Ned are adrift in the Old West, searching for the man who shot their Ma. These two youngsters only have each other, but with all their squabbling it's a miracle they still have that. When they get wind of the mysterious Pa ( crime kingpin of the West! ), Opie and Ned suddenly have something new: a mission. But tracking down the elusive (and deadly) Pa is going to take all the wiles these two kids have, and some new friends to boot. Clever, explosive, and deeply moving by turns, Varmints is a perfect middle-grade comedy. Hirsch brings an old- school Western style to bear on a story full of nuance, humour, and surprises.

Reviews

In a series of set-piece chapters, Hirsh chucks the young searchers into saloon brawls, gunfights, and encounters with a massive mountain man clad in a bearskin onesie and a motherly if larcenous woman of low virtue, among other dust-ups. --Kirkus.. .kids who want to sign on for more Wild West mayhem are bound to get their wish. --BCCB
