Five-Star Review Has Us Howling with Delight!  FIVE STARS

ranchheroReviewed by Bil Howard for Readers’ FavoriteRanch Hero 2: Mooving Velma, written by Janet Green and illustrated by Linda Cowan, is an entertaining and imaginative tale about a super-dog named Ziggy who is the hero of Sneaky Creek Ranch. Ziggy gets to show off his super-hero skills to Lilli Lou, Bam Bam and Chubadoo when Velma the cow gets stuck in the mud of Sneaky Creek. Though farmer Max arrives on the scene with his tractor, he is unable to decide what to do and simply scratches his head. However, Ziggy keeps working the problem from every angle until he finds the right solution. To the delight of those who could see him, as well as those who could not, Ziggy springs into a plan of action. Will he again be able to continue to show why he is the Ranch Hero of Sneaky Creek Ranch?

This is a delightful and creative story that utilizes a wonderful skill for expressive and colorful illustrations by Linda Cowan, mixed with the awesome talent of Janet Green, for making a delightful tale come to life. The plot is simple, but brings a challenge to the hero, which, momentarily, seems impossible as farmer Max is only able to scratch his head and wonder what he should do. This story will draw a young child into it with wide-eyed wonder and the colorful illustrations will stir further imagination. All in all, this is a children’s picture book which was brilliantly designed and wonderfully written. It would be a great error to not have this in every child’s reading library.
