The Toad brothers are wreaking havoc in Drywater Gulch when a boy with no experience but immense knowledge of dinosaurs rides into town on his tortoise and declares himself the new sheriff.
The stark, stylized illustrations in this book fit perfectly with the old western theme of this classic cowboy tale… with a twist of dinosaurs. While the story is a little far-fetched (the thieves surrendering themselves because they want the credit for their bad deeds!) it’s silly and fun and a fantastic premise for a children’s book.
Bob Shea has written and illustrated more than a dozen picture books, including Dinosaur vs. Bedtime, and is the author of Kid Sheriff and the Terrible Toads and Big Plans, both illustrated by Lane Smith.
