KIRKUS REVIEW

Comic techniques for a picture story book aimed at the read aloud interest level, when Cowboys are tops in appeal. Every kid who has flaunted his chaps and three gallon hat and chanted Yippse Yippee Yay will chuckle over this story of silent Slim Jim who occasionally scared the cattle into stampede by his singing, and of how eventually his song developed qualities the cattle liked. Le Grand has a way with him- as evidenced in his Augustus books. Here it is, in different vein.
