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.

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 read this every year as an example of a fairy tale with a twist to my fourth grade students. They like this version of the traditional Cinderella story. A very fun read. The kids love it with a cowboy accent!

This is another great "revision" of a popular fairy tale, (Cinderella). This time Cinderella is a boy. This makes the story popular with the boys in my classes. They fight to be the ones to compare Bubba with the traditional Cinderella. Bubba is funny, easy to read and the pictures are charming. A winner!

I really do enjoy this author's books! This is kind of a twist on cinderella, but my daughter and I enjoy the story and pictures all the same. We also have a contest to see who can find the fairy god ow on every page.
