FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Hank the Cowdog is head of Ranch Security in this action-packed adventure series that will tickle funny bones of adults and children alike.

Children's Literature

Hank is the self-appointed head of ranch security, and one incredibly stupid dog. He manages to get himself into unbelievable scrapes. In this outing, there is a hilarious scene when he tries to help Slim deliver a calf. The title escapade involves slurping up a bit of beef liver that is unfortunately attached to a fishhook. Hank fans will enjoy the book as usual. Those new to the series should probably choose a different volume as an entry point as this one is a little slower moving than most and not quite as hilarious. I also found myself annoyed at the intentional misspellings; Hank is dumb enough without them and it may confuse the target audience, for example, they may not realize that "graffication" is the wrong way to say and spell "gratification."
