DO COWBOYS RIDE BIKES? by Kathy Tucker

DO COWBOYS RIDE BIKES?

Age Range: 3 - 6

KIRKUS REVIEW

 Tucker and Westcott (Do Pirates Take Baths?, 1994, not reviewed) turn to the cowboy life in rollicking verse and pictures. Each spread answers a headlined question (e.g., ``Where do cowboys live?''); the text imparts minimal information while the illustrations take a more humorous approach. The answer to ``what happens after the round-up?'' explains that the cattle are driven ``along an old trail,'' while the map shows ``where the round-up starts'' and a dotted line that wends its way around Big Rocks and Little Rocks, through a Great Forest where a couple of cows stray, fords a Stream, crosses a Very Dry Desert, circles a rattlesnake, slips past some bad guys, and heads straight into the Saloon in the next town. While children will enjoy the fluff, they won't come away with much to chew on from this heapin' helpin' of Old West nonsense. (Picture book. 3-6)
