I Want to Be a Cowgirl

Spring 2002 Picture Books
Ages: 4 - 8 yrs.
Author: Jeanne Willis
Illustrator: Tony Ross
ISBN: 0-8050-6997-6
Hardcover Price: $15.95
Our feisty heroine has no use for the big city or what she considers the role of girls in her world. She wants to be a cowgirl in the Wild West-- with the emphasis on wild. The text, flowing across the bottom of two-page spreads, is humorous verse seemingly written in the child's printing. It is expanded and enhanced by the artist's funny interpretations of her vivid imagination.
