- A good book for kids. Children 7-11 will like it. This book is good for boys and girls.
- I love all the Hank books, and this is a great one for the Christmas season. These books are hilarious and more important to the young reader, fun to read. I'd also check the rest of the series.Author of "Hobo Finds A Home" editor "Of A Predatory Heart"
- In this episode Hank, whild `helping' to load cattle on a truck is accidentally locked in the truck with the steers...not good because Hank being Hank has said some pretty snotty things to the steers and nipped their heels. Well of course Hank survives long enough to escape in the nearby town. There he meets an old friend, Dogpound Ralph. Together they escape once again and `go out on the town." Per usual, Hank gets into one mess after another.I enjoyed this book as I do all the Hank books but must admit that this one is not at the top of my list of most favorites. To begin with, Dover, Hanks assistant on the ranch, plays a very minor role in this one and Drover is my favorite character. I missed the convoluted conversations between Hank and Drover...Dogpound Ralph just is not the same.This was a good story though and is an ideal family read and, like all the Hank books, is a great work to offer a reluctant reader.Don BlankenshipThe Ozarks
- Hank the cowdog is hilarious. I love reading these books to my nine and ten year old. Sometimes they want me to read a sentence over that made them laugh so they can laugh again.
- We absolutely love this book.Its very entertaining to read at night to my son after tucking him at night.
- The Hank the Cowdog series of books are enjoyable for family listening. We listen and laugh out loud during road trips. Hank and Ralph escape the dog pound and start on an adventure complete with original songs, mixed metaphors and Hank initiated mishaps.
- I usally love Hank the Cowdog books, but I wasn't crazy about this one. Hank said bad things about Black Labs, my favorite dogs in the world. Plus, I think Rip and Snort should have been in there longer. I really like those two.
