Book Details

Drywater Gulch has a toad problem. Not the hop-down-your-britches, croaking-all-night toad kind of problem. The thievin', hootin' and hollerin', steal-your-gold never-say-thank-you outlaw toad kind of problem.

Then hope rides into town. Sheriff Ryan might only be seven years old, and he might not know much about shooting and roping. But he knows a lot about dinosaurs. Yes, dinosaurs. And it turns out that knowing a thing or two about paleontology can come in handy when it comes to hoodwinking and rounding up a few no-good bandits. From Bob Shea and Lane Smith comes this hilarious picture book, Kid Sheriff and the Terrible Toads.

This title has Common Core connections.

“*A crowd-pleasin' knee-slapper that'll have 'em rolling in the aisles, yessirree.” —Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW


“*Shea's humor is spot-on in Sherriff Ryan's unwavering logic . . . and Smith's illustrations match the deadpan silliness to a tee . . . Another stellar job by Shea and Smith.” —School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW

“Shea and Smith, the duo behind Big Plans, deliver a western yarn that's long on cowboy slang and longer on screwball comedy.” —Publishers Weekly
