Inhaltsangabe: Rosie and her wranglers meet up with Greasy Ben and his gang in this rollicking tale of adventure.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-4-- The Old West has never been more appealing than in this rip-roaring, yet gentle British tale of ranchers vs. rustlers. Rosie Jones is boss of the cowboys and presides over a neat, cozy little ranch where Fancy Dan, Salad Sam, One-Leg Smith, Singing Sid, Mad McGhee and Utah Jim "Work extremely hard, to stop her getting cross." Their exaggerated hats are tall enough to hold at least 10 gallons and, of course, are light in color, if not white. In darker, but equally tall hats, are Greasy Ben and his band of ruffians. Each page contains one or two quatrains and Gerrard's characteristically clever, charming, and detailed watercolor illustrations. As the good guys chase the bad, double-page spreads present panoramic views of mountains, canyons, and cactus. Pages with a great deal of white space follow, while Rosie and the cowboys figure out how to capture Greasy Ben without a fight. Gerrard, in his usual fashion, has captured a child's view of a western adventure in which sleeping on the hard and lumpy ground, morning baths in a stream, and eating beans for breakfast are made important. Details in the illustrations of the bunk house combine the motifs of the West with homey images of a teddy bear, family portraits, and picture books. One is reminded of dioramas when turning these pages: miniatures of ranch, desert, and town that enable viewers to walk right in and be a part of it all. Gerrard uses rich browns, blues, and pale greens with touches of reds, reaching children with little details that will make them giggle and even explode into laughter. --Kay E.
