Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Yippie-i-oh Saddle up for the first in a spin-off series starring favorite characters from Kate DiCamillo's New York Times best-selling Mercy Watson books.
Leroy Ninker has a hat, a lasso, and boots. What he doesn't have is a horse -- until he meets Maybelline, that is, and then it's love at first sight. Maybelline loves spaghetti and sweet nothings, and she loves Leroy, too. But when Leroy forgets the third and final rule of caring for Maybelline, disaster ensues. Can Leroy wrestle fate to the ground, rescue the horse of his heart, and lasso loneliness for good? Join Leroy, Maybelline, and a cast of familiar characters -- Stella, Frank, Mrs. Watson, and everyone's favorite porcine wonder, Mercy -- for some hilarious and heartfelt horsing around on Deckawoo Drive.

   Funny...but you gotta embellish
I'm not sure my son enjoyed the book in the way the author intended, but we had great fun together, Mrs. Rule told The Age. First, find the Science Kid on Youtube. Second, perfect mimicry. Now, use this voice when Leroy Ninker speaks and be prepared to feel like super-dad as your 9 year old rolls in his bed from laughter. We're still calling each other Leroy Ninker. Leroy is a grown man who lives in a tiny apartment, wants to be a cowboy, feeds his horse spageh, and has the most beautificus in all of the wide world. Ye Ye Ye Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, Ye, One thing I didn't understand, and maybe there's a sequel out there, is that Leroy Ninker's quote about once having been a thief and a bad man. What did he rob? If a director out there was willing to eschew political correctness, and not worry about offending, this would be a hilarious kid's movie.

   I thought it would be perfect. It is a really cute book
A couple of years ago, we bought a set of Watson's books. It's a really cute book, decently easy to read, but still a bit of a challenge to keep him interested. After he finished reading this one, I tried to find more about Leroy Ninker, but it looks like the next couple of books will be about other characters. We'd love to see more of this little guy, Tunick said.

   🎵 Back In The Saddle 🎵
Leroy Ninker, 57, was working at the Bijou Drive-In in Shreveport. He tells the story of how he got a buddy and lost him. Before he was killed, Gaines had a dream that he would be a cowboy. He wore a cowboy hat and boots, and Davy Crockett wore a suit. But he had a horse, and he could do it without a lasso. And, of course, there are horses. In her newspaper ad, Beatrice asked him to take a photo of herself. What it says is that the government has no interest in Hamdi's life. What was it? You get to read the rest of the book. I highly recommend this book to anyone. Leroy is on his way to find a new friend.

   Poetic cowboy with heart!
In fact, The Fifth Estate says that when Harrison's widow, Ethel, asked him what he would do with her life savings, he replied: "In a book." The short man had no interest in becoming a cowboy, Mr. Cowger said. He has the hat, the lasso, and the boots, Mr. Riley said. No horse, no sir. Even when he doesn't get one, he learns to be outspoken with compliments. But when a disaster happens, what will be done? It's just that if I don't mind some things, the good vibes transcend the whole story. A cowboy and his horse are legendary.

   Great extension of Mercy Watson Series
We've read all the mercy watson books, and while we're old enough to remember them, we still wax poetically about that pig and her toast. He was a good character as a criminal, but he was even better at the drive-in. We're so glad to hear that he's become a cowboy, Sosa said. It's great to be back home, said Blair.

   An enjoyable read aloud
I have read all the Harry Potter books, and my 4 year old has devoured them all. She was so excited when she realized the horse was looking through Stella's window from the previous book.

   Kate DiCamillo Comes In With Another Win
There is just something about Decawoo Drive that draws people in. Just about everything about this movie will set records, even if you don't get to the bottom of the story. It's a great story of a good man who works with dynamite. We were so excited to see the'reformed thief' from the Mercy tales have his own story, Taylor said.

   Cute story! My 6 year year old is a fan!
We're on our second reading of this book. I read this to my 6 year old kindergartener, and it's just too good to read. It is also the first book he would let me read. The nice chapters are short, with larger fonts and pictures, said Dr. Goin. Not intimidating at all, Mr. Rule told the judge.

   Fun series of books
He also loved the Watson books, which we read when he was 4 years old. He was 5 when we finished work on Leroy Ninker Saddles Up. The second volume of the "Ethics" series is a double-lengther, 986 pages. It provides many opportunities for building vocabulary, and comprehension skills such as predicting, making connections and inferring, he said. The story is very cute and the illustrations are really fun, Mr. Dhaliwal said. We can't wait to read the second book, we think.
