How to be a Cowboy

Author(s): Alice Lickens

Children's Non Fiction

A super-cool guide to everything cowboy: it's perfect for the big kid within you. It contains maps of the cowboys' favourite stomping grounds, a dress-your-own-cowboy section (with cut-out clothes, colonial spurs, woollies, shotguns - for long rides - and batwing chaps), a boot-stitching workshop and instructions for navigating by the stars like a real-life cowboy. And for when you're ready to become a cowboy, you get to choose your own range name. Beautiful illustrations and fun activities from illustrator Alice Lickens, who was awarded the prestigious Sendak Fellowship in 2012, make this an exquisite gift book to treasure, ideal for aspiring cowboys of all ages. Word count: 2,000
