Diamond Jim Dandy and the Sheriff by Sarah Burell tells the story of the day a giant rattlesnake arrived in the town of Dustpan, Texas. Now, Dustpan is a quiet and peaceful place where nothing exciting ever happens. The people who live there like it that way... or do they?
This upbeat book is a lot of fun, and we're all big fans of Bryan's gentle and humorous style. (He set the initial style for the kid characters in our Hooked on Phonics workbooks.)
You should check it out when it slithers your way.
