Hank the Cowdog Sep 6, 2008
These are the funnest books to read. I use my Hank the Cowdog voice and my Drover voice and the kids all giggle. I do sound just like him.

I love all the Hank books, and this is a great one for the Christmas season. These books are hilarious and more important to the young reader, fun to read. I'd also check the rest of the series.
