BOOK REVIEW

COWBOYS by Glen Rounds
by Glen Rounds, illustrated by Glen Rounds
CHILDREN'S
Released: April 15, 1991

"Fifty-five years after his first fine book (Ol' Paul, still in print), this old cowboy (Rounds himself) is going stronger than ever. (Picture book. 4-8)"
Still experimenting within his bold, trademark style, Rounds achieves surprising subtlety in these illustrations for a quiet, informative text describing what real cowboys do on a typical day (``A cowboy's first chore after breakfast is to catch and saddle a horse—but sometimes that's easier said than done!'').

BOOK REVIEW

ONCE WE HAD A HORSE by Glen Rounds
ANIMALS
Released: May 15, 1996

"The photograph on the book jacket shows a shaggy old horse and two proud children on his back, confirming just how lifelike the cartoon-style pictures really are, capturing the spirit of all the participants in that summer of learning to ride. (Picture book. 4- 8)"
A simple, updated text, full-color pictures, and large typeface make this revision of the 1971 book a natural for children who can read independently but who still want to cozy up to a picture book, as well as for Rounds's many fans and those seeking stories about life in an earlier era of America.
