When Sheriff Pa says it's time for bed, Cowboy Baby must first rustle up his partners: Texas Ted, Denver Dog, and Hank the Horse. Even after he finds them, there's still time for a quick game of hide-and-seek with Sheriff Pa. The line between fantasy and reality is charmingly obscured in this large-sized (12 x 10") picture book about the power of imaginary play. Boldly colored illustrations skew and flatten perspectives to reinforce the notion that most of the action is taking place in Cowboy Baby's mind. And Sheriff Pa has obviously earned his badge for his willingness to play along with his creative little buckaroo. (Ages 2-5)
