When Cat and his bandicoot have a crazy accident with a camel, a mouse, and cliff –Del Moore the snake might be their only hope.
This is an awesome story, the plot, setting, and characters are incredibly fun. It full of big bright illustrations which are perfect for story time. The variations in text size color adds interest. Some of the rhyming doesn’t flow well for me, maybe in song form it would. But I still loved it! Student will adore this book and you will have to plan a cowboy party!
