LoveReading View on The Wildest Cowboy

May 2018 Book of the Month | Wonderful rhyme carries you through this rollicking ride through the wild west and a town they called Fear, whose scary inhabitants wear rattlesnake socks, chew rocks and and soon leave newcomer, the colourful and jolly Bingo B. Brown without his cheerful grin. 

Bingo soon discovers that as scary as the cowboys in town are, the wildest, scariest cowboy of all comes calling after dark.  Frightened by the tales he hears of this terrible stranger, Bingo and his dog decide to leave town.  They soon discover that you can't run away from the things that scare you as they come face to face with the fear spreading cowboy.  Bingo soon finds his courage though and before long this baddie goes from spiteful to delightful.  

This is an absolute joy to read and is packed full of fun and colourful illustrations that complement the story perfectly. ~ Shelley Fallows - You can also find Shelley here.


The Wildest Cowboy Synopsis

Way out in the West there's a town they call Fear And only the roughest and toughest live here . . .

When cheerful salesman, Bingo B Brown, rolls his wagon full of Wild West goodies into town, he's met with a stony silence. This is clearly no place for novelty bow ties and elastic lassos. Not even Bingo's dancing dog can raise a smile! But this town is not just joyless, it's dangerous. And as Bingo soon discovers, the people of the town are not just scary, they're also scared. It isn't long before Bingo and his dog discover why, as they come face to face with the Wildest Cowboy in the West!

Saddle up for a spectacular ride with a wildly talented pairing: film director and author, Garth Jennings and star illustrator, Sara Ogilvie. The Wildest Cowboy is a funny and uplifting adventure story in which fun wins out over fear. Featuring a dramatic train chase, rattlesnake socks and a dancing dog.
