Summary
A little boy who doesn't fit in at camp finds out just how valuable his non-cowboy skills can be. Every child will relate to the message, the humor, and the deliciously playful illustrations.

Giddyup, kids, and gallop right over to read this rootin' tootin' tale of an unlikely would-be hero. Avery's at camp, trying hard to saddle up and master his lasso, but he's just not like the other cowboys. He's allergic to the horses and can't stand the grub. But when a bully threatens all the campers, Avery proves his mettle in his own unique way. Young readers will have lots of fun with the story's lively language and wildly humorous pictures.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Sauer's Cowboy Camp 0 is a simple, clever tale that promises to be a crowd-pleaser. Avery takes one look at his fellow campers and knows that he doesn't really fit in. He can't stomach cowboy food. His lasso gives him rope burn. And because he's allergic to horses, he's forced to saddle up a cow. Sitting alone before the campfire at night, Avery is confronted by Black Bart, a desperado who threatens to put an end to Cowboy Camp forever. Only someone with Avery's special attributes could convince such a villain that this couldn't possibly 0 be Cowboy Camp. In Avery, Sauer creates an unlikely yet likable hero. Reed's expressive paintings, stretching across double-page spreads, include both broadly comic and unambiguously melodramatic scenes, all carried off with a sure hand. The Black Bart scenes are particularly effective--from the sight of his craggy profile to his ride off into the sunrise. --Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2006 Booklist"
