Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2–Cowboy Ned and his horse, Andy, spend a hot, tiring day driving cattle. That night, Andy listens as Ned reveals that tomorrow is his birthday and bemoans the fact that his family is not there to celebrate. Unable to sleep, the horse decides that the man must have a cake and heads into the desert to find one. After asking assistance from a singing cricket, a wide-eyed owl, and a grouchy scorpion, Andy comes upon the lonely house of an old cowboy. He cannot provide a cake, but he helps Andy to realize that the best thing to have on your birthday is a friend to share it with. As the sun rises, the horse gallops back to camp to give Ned a birthday hug. Stein's language is simple yet expressive. The old cowboy's voice is described as soft, like hooves on sand, and owl wings, and the movements of dust. These images stir the imagination and also evoke the story's action and setting. Done in ink and watercolor, the cartoon illustrations make the most of the Western landscape, depicting a pale gold daytime sky, a soothingly blue moonlit night, and a multihued sunrise. Thick lines highlight the characters and background objects, providing contrast to the fluid colors. Andy is the star here, and his equine features comically convey concern, dejection, and, ultimately, happiness. A satisfying tale of friendship.–Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal

I have the children gallop with their feet whenever Andy goes gallloping through the desert, to further involve them in the story.

Found this book by accident while browsing around Amazon. Ordered it and loved it!
Andy's devotion to his cowboy Ned is touching. Makes me want to get a horse ... like King, the pony I had as a child. In my imagination, I can just see King doing something "human and loving" like Andy.
The illustrations are perfect for this author's well-chosen words.
A good, entertaining book.

I love the message of this book. Children are constantly being bombarded with messages of needing more and more stuff. This books lesson is that good friends are more important than stuff. The story full of magic moments and beautiful illustrations too.

I teach young children from 18 months to kindergarten and they all love this book. Cowboy Ned and Andy are sweet, caring friends and the desert is a nice locale - a good change of pace from the usual farm animal stories. Andy wants to get a cake for his lonely friend Cowboy Ned's birthday, but it turns out a cake is kind of hard to find in the desert. But it's okay, because it turns out the best thing to have on your birthday is a friend to share it with. I have the children gallop with their feet whenever Andy goes gallloping through the desert, to further involve them in the story. They also like to sing "Happy Birthday" along with the cows at the end of the story! You and your young students (or your own children) will thoroughly enjoy this book.

Great book - my preschoolers really enjoyed it!
It was geared towards young readers and while it didn't focus too much on actual cowboys, it was a great story and was a great addition to our Cowboy/Western Unit!
