Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3—Young Jake creates havoc at the rodeo by accidentally opening the gates on the livestock pens. A herd of heifers, chickens, horses, pigs, etc., then take over the show area. There are "calves on carousels, rabbits on roller coasters, pigs on paddleboats!" Jake rectifies his mistake by disguising himself as a rattlesnake and scares the animals back into their pens, saving the day for the "FFA and 4-H folks" who were hoping to win scholarships. Although the topic of this tall tale is rather unique, the text and illustrations are pedestrian. Jake's Texas rattler getup is pretty unbelievable: he wraps himself in a burlap sack and uses a baby rattle on his tail (the pictures do not make clear how it is attached). Most libraries can skip this one.—Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA

From the Publisher

It is pandemonium during the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo at Reliant Stadium where Jake carelessly creates folly and mayhem! Author Dotti Enderle and illustrator Chuck Galey take us on a wild Texas adventure. In a matter of minutes, the participants and attendees are scrambling for safety as Jake accidentally releases the latches on the animal pens at this popular, annual Texas show. Realizing what he has done, Jake crafts a clever plan to fix the mess he has created and saves the day by recapturing all the escaped livestock. Filled with excitement and hilarity, "The Fat Stock Stampede at the Houston Livestock Show" and Rodeo celebrates the fun and fascination of learning from our mistakes.

I purchased this book for my daughter as she is a fan of all of Ms. Enderle's writing. She particularly wanted to read this one because she had read The Cotton Candy Catastrophe at the Texas State Fair. She enjoyed the book, the terrific illustrations and Jake's ingenuity. She thinks it's funny that Jake keeps doing things that aren't mean to cause problems, but the problems that result are huge. She also likes that he is able to solve the problems in the end!

After accidentally causing a catastrophe in Dallas at the State Fair, our hero, Jake, has now created another one in Houston. When he inadvertently lets loose all the animals at the Houston Rodeo Livestock Show, another riotous adventure begins. With heifers playing volleyball with a broncobuster, rabbits on roller coasters and bulls turning the Chili Cook-Off into a vegetarian contest, the fun never ends.
Kids will love Jakes's ingenious solution to the chaos.

I sent this to my grandchildren in Dallas and they loved it. The youngest in the family, a litle girl with three brothers, took the book to bed with her. Their Mom grew up in Houston, so it's a little bit of our hometown culture for the kids and their Chicago-area born Dad!
