Bo is an armadillo that is always getting distracted. One day while out with his family, he sees a girl in red cowgirl boots and mistakes her boots for another armadillo. After he follows her to a rodeo and manages to ride a horse, eat a chili pepper, and dance, he finally realizes his mistake---but always knows where to go if he's looking for a change in his routine.
When Bo spots what he thinks is a "rip-roarin', rootin'-tootin', shiny red armadillo," he knows what he has to do. Follow that armadillo! Bo leaves his mother and three brothers behind and takes off for a two-stepping, bronco-bucking adventure. Jan Brett turns her considerable talents toward the Texas countryside in this amusing story of an armadillo on his own.
"Brett gives her trademark, exquisitely detailed art a Western flair..." (Publishers Weekly, starred review)
