Humorous, inspirational story that all will love
Meet six-year-old Tommy Johnson, Super Cowboy and Super Story-teller. Want to build a box to capture wild cats that roam the farm? How about tips on catching a greased pig at the fair, or teaching a stubborn lamb to avoid being trampled by angry milk cows? From the first paragraph, when Tommy explains why a boy needs a dog for a pet instead of a cat, he wins us over with his down-to-earth and humorous view of the world. Once Tommy begins school, however, things get complicated. He gets picked on by teachers and mocked by classmates. And then tragedy strikes. In the process of dealing with his grief, Tommy learns the meaning of true friendship.
