Publisher's Description

Cowboy Gus is cured of a bad case of gullibility by listening to three tall tales.

Poor Cowboy Gus! He believes everything the other cowboys tell him, so he gets teased all the time. To cure his terrible case of gullibility, Gus visits Fibrock, a town full of liars. There he encounters Hokum Malarkey, who tells him three outrageous stories—while relieving him of all his money. But Gus doesn’t mind. If he can honestly say the words “I don’t believe it,” he’ll be cured forever.

With extravagant humor and lively language, Maxine Schur presents three tall tales within a frame story, each one just right for the chapter-book audience. Andrew Glass’s hilarious illustrations perfectly depict the hapless hero and the other larger-than-life characters that populate these wild and woolly adventures.

Author Bio

Editorial Reviews

"This darn good yarn will have kids galloping through the pages."—Kirkus Reviews

"The many colorful country expressions, like ’perilous portion of pure poppycock,’ will help keep readers engaged. The illustrations have a gritty look that fits nicely with the rural southwestern ambience. . . . Those who enjoyed the Amelia Bedelia stories would enjoy this."—Booklist
