 A rollicking sweetheart of a yarn about teamwork, in western dress, part of this publisher's Easy-to-Read line. A traveling band of entertainers floats down from the sky to bring a little excitement to a quiet frontier town and come face to face with some ornery bandits. Men and women work together to successfully save the town in a book that moves swiftly and smoothly to its free-spirited climax. Taback's scenes are joyous, fun, and never too busy. They work well with the text and focus on the clearly described events, helping new readers along the comprehension trail. The art includes typical tones of the old West and a variety of lively purples and greens adding to the carnivalesque atmosphere. (Picture book. 4-8)
