LEROY NINKER SADDLES UP is a brand new series by Kate DiCamillo – a spin-off of the very popular and New York Times best-selling Mercy Watson books. In this first book in the series, Leroy Ninker has everything a cowboy could want – a hat, lasso, and boots. What he doesn’t have… what he needs most of all is… a horse. “How could he ever hope to be a cowboy, a real cowboy, a true cowboy, without a horse?”
Beatrice Leapaleoni, the ticket-seller at the Bijou Drive-In Theater where Leroy works, has the perfect solution. She hands Leroy a copy of the Gizzford Gazette. “Listen,” said Beatrice.” What you have to do here is take fate in your hands and wrestle it to the ground.”
And so, the next day, Leroy, the self-proclaimed cowboy, is off to procure himself a horse.
Don’t miss Book #1 in this entertaining new series. It’s the perfect read-aloud! Book #2, Francine Poulet Meets the Ghost Raccoon arrives on bookstore and library shelves this coming August, 2015. I, for one, can’t wait!
