Pub. Date:
One day, Pecos Bill’s daughter Sal announces she wants a pet hamster. Her father agrees to get her two, and before she knows it, the hamsters multiply. First there are five. Then fifteen. Then twenty-eight hamsters. Eventually thousands are running around the range. They eat all the grass. They drive the longhorns away from the waterholes. Something has to be done! Why not ship them off to Chicago as city pets? And so The Great Texas Hamster Drive takes off—and that’s just the beginning of more trouble for Pecos Bill, Sal, and the whole family. Bruce Whatley’s vibrant water color illustrations bring the Southwest to life in this endearing tale.
