Somehow Hank keeps the Western "voice" while staying true to being a dog. There's a mystery to be solved and a ranch to be kept safe. There is a lot of humor amidst life lessons. I found this quotation to be one of those:
You can’t be safe and cautious all the time. If you’re too timid in this life, you’ll miss out on all the fun and adventure. You’ll just stay home and snap at the flies, and when you get to be an old dog, you’ll look back on your life and think, “All these years I’ve been on this earth, and I’ve never done anything but snap at flies.” And you'll regret that, when the opportunity came up, you didn't sneak a ride into town.
It is well worth the reading by adults who like young adult fiction. It can be shared with middle school aged children on up. I will slowly be adding the entire series of 70+ books.
The Hank the Cowdog series of books were my kid's very favorites growing up.These books made my kids want to learn to read. They even asked for Hank the Cowdog books for Christmas! (Shocking, right?)
All the kids liked them so much so that now that THEY are having kids of their own, they're all fighting over who gets to "inherit" the Hank the Cowdog books for their own kids. Well, Grandma's got to have something to read to the grand kids, when they visit so THIS Grandma is KEEPING her Cowdog Books.
However, I'm still a good Grandma so I buy them their own set of Hank the Cowdog books as gifts and now the CD sets too. Kids now days spend a lot of time in the car so I get the CD's for them to listen to. The grand kids like them so much they love hearing them even though they've already read them THREE times!
