Editorial Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews

A Cinderella parody features the off-the-wall, whang-dang Texas hyperbole of Ketteman (The Year of No More Corn, 1993, etc.) and the insouciance of Warhola, who proves himself only too capable of creating a fairy godcow; that she's so appealingly whimsical makes it easy to accept the classic tale's inversions. The protagonist is Bubba, appropriately downtrodden and overworked by his wicked stepdaddy and loathsome brothers Dwayne and Milton, who spend their days bossing him around. The other half of the happy couple is Miz Lurleen, who owns ``the biggest spread west of the Brazos.'' She craves male companionship to help her work the place, ``and it wouldn't hurt if he was cute as a cow's ear, either.'' There are no surprises in this version except in the hilarious way the premise plays itself out and in Warhola's delightful visual surprises. When Lurleen tracks the bootless Bubba down, ``Dwayne and Milton and their wicked daddy threw chicken fits.'' Bubba and babe, hair as big as a Texas sun, ride off to a life of happy ranching, and readers will be proud to have been along for the courtship.

The story is really funny, and the illustrations are beautiful.

Our whole family LOVES Bubba! This is a fantastic, extremely funny twist on the old "Cinderella" tale. The art work is amazing - we delight in the illustrations and the book is just plain fun to read! My daughter adores the fact that Bubba [the "boy" Cinderella in this tale] wants to go to the ball with Miz Lurlene [its a cool change!].
We read this in a Texas drawl [you almost can't help it!] and just have loads of laughs with every re-reading. We originally checked this out of the library on a whim and have since bought our own copy [and will probably be giving copies for birthday presents too!]. This book is money well spent - and one I truly don't mind reading for the 3,000th time!

This book is fabulous! My son loves it and I look forward to reading it to him. The story is a twist on the classical "Cinderella" story but set on a ranch in Texas and this time Cinderella is a cowboy! It's the best! I can't tell you how much everyone who reads it raves about it.

My first grade class absolutely loves Bubba! They want me to talk like Miz Lurlene all the time...what a good Texas accent can do to entertain and keep kids on task! They know all the words by heart! When Miz Lurlene talks, they listen. I did not tell my students that it was a Cinderella take off, and one of my boys jumped up in the middle and shouted, "Hey, this is like Cinderella!" and now we all believe in the Fairy God Cow. Thanks, Helen Ketteman and James Warhola!

I just checked out this book from our local library and was very impressed with how the tale of the Cinderella fairytale was changed for the male version. My son is the most cowboyish kid I've ever met and he truly enjoyed ths book. I highley recommend this for fun reading as well as a great Christmas/Birthday gift for any cowboy young or old. Great pictures also.

I bought this book for my 4 year preschool class after it was highly recommended by another teacher. I read this book for Circle Time - every child sat mesmerized. I ended up reading it twice that day and it has been requested several time since then. The story is cute and everyone got a giggle out of the Fairy Godcow!

This book was recommended by our Librarian because I was looking for some outstanding illustrated books for my 6 yr. old daughter who is real observant and truly enjoys and appreciates the detailed illustrations in the books she reads. She had not expected a twist on the well known Cinderella tale. What a humorous and enjoyable story to read with illustrations that take you right into the story. This book was not only entertaining but the colorful and humorous illustrations were outstanding! My daughter and I love this book so much that we ordered it for our own library at home.

This book was without a doubt one of the most enjoyable books that I have ever had the pleasure of sharing with students and teachers alike. I have used this book in numerous workshops that I have taught and have always found a warm delightful reaction to the reading of this book. Students from ages 6 to 12 absolutely love the text and the illustrations. I'm ready for another fractured fairy tale. Keep 'em coming like this!
