Wonderful, my 8 yrd old grandson loved this book and wants to read more of the same.

Here's book for fans of DiCamillo's Mercy Watson series introducing a small-in-stature cowboy named Leroy Ninker and his new horse Maybelline. It's as goofy as all get out and worthy of a whole-hearted, "Yeehaw!" Grades 1-3

"In real life, Leroy Ninker sells popcorn at the Bijou Drive-In Theater. But in his dreams, Leroy is a cowboy just like the ones in the Wednesday night Western movie double feature. Determined to make his dreams come true, Leroy learns to talk and dress like a cowboy (boots, hat, and all) and goes in search of a trusty steed. What he finds, however, is Maybelline, an old horse who loves sweet talk and prefers spaghetti to hay. Supported by old-fashioned yet energetic artwork, two-time Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo's distinctively quirky blend of humour and heart shines in this chapter book spin-off of the popular Mercy Watson series."
