Back Roads, Country Toads

We rated this book:


Hank and Buckeroo are a couple of country toads. They hang out by the country general store, and one day they overhear some men at the store are planning on going fly fishing. Flies? Hank and Buckeroo can’t think of anything tastier. They jump into a picnic basket in the fishermen’s truck and go along for the ride. At the lake, they meet Emmitt, a raccoon. And it’s a good thing because Emmitt keeps the two from catching the fake fishing flies with their tongues. Emmitt steals a fish, and that gives Hank an idea that will allow Hank and Buckeroo the best day of their lives so far.

Author Devin Scillian has written a lively tale that is full of silly puns and clever writing. The adults who read this to little ones will enjoy this every bit as much as their young audience. Illustrator Tim Bowers has filled the pages with wonderfully silly illustrations filled with fun details that will keep youngsters searching for the funny in the pictures. This is a book that will have kids saying, “Read it again, please!” And the adults won’t mind because it is so much fun.
