Cowpoke Clyde and Dirty Dawg
Written by Lori Mortensen, illustrated by Michael Allen Austin.
Clarion Books, 2013. 32 pages.
Cowpoke Clyde has finished his work for the day and is ready to put up his feet and relax for awhile; that is, until he remembers that it's time to give his faithful dog (aka "Dirty Dawg") a bath. Now bathing a dog is never an easy chore, but attempting it on a big ranch with even more animals around provides lots of opportunity for trouble! Hilarity ensues, and little ones will be tickled by the rowdy illustrations and cowboy drawl in this rip-roaring rhyming adventure!
