Synopsis

Playground Prairie by Tom Barber

It's Sam's first day at school but he'd rather be out on the ranch. When playtime arrives he heads to the climbing frame (the best look-out for miles around) and won't budge. Sam's teacher, Mrs Enniver, thinks she knows how to tempt him back to the classroom. The local sheriff needs a deputy and Sam would be perfect for the job but will Sam climb down and put on the deputy badge?

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
