The Rowdy Randy Wild West-The Legend Behind the Legend, is an animated and fun way to introduce American history of The Old West to your child. Rowdy Randy has a vision of her Wild West Show and auditions other native wild animals to join her. During this time, Rowdy Randy just can’t shake that something is off but must carry on to plan, prepare and practice with her show crew. As the show goes on, the illustrations continue to draw you in as you read about Rowdy Randy and her Wild West Show.
This was a cute little adventure. I love the moral of the story. My son really enjoyed this adventure. super cute!
The Rowdy Randy Wild West Show is a fun, lengthy story about a horsefly who runs a variety show. I loved the illustrations of many different animals and their various talents! This is a longer book for bedtime, I'd say elementary school students would love it.
This was a cute book and the illustrations were great. The animals were life like on each page. I like how all the various animals were helping out to get the show ready. Towards the end of the book, Rowdy Randy, the main character, sees someone on horseback putting up a poster. The illustration of this person is life like as well and makes one want to find out more about this person Rowdy Randy sees.
This was a cute story and very colorful illustrations. It would be a great read aloud book for a classroom. I think 1st-3rd grade would most likely understand the message behind the book and the vocabulary. Lots of activities with vocabulary! Thank you to NetGalley for the ARC.
The illustrations in this book are delightful and charming. The style will draw in both young and old audiences. The story follows Rowdy Randy, a daring horsefly in the wild west, as she prepares for and performs in a Wild West Show. The other animals have to audition for her and then the lucky ones perform in her show as opening acts. Rowdy Randy has a foreboding feeling throughout the story that she can’t place, but eagle-eyed readers will recognize the shadow looming in the background of some scenes. The story is cute though a bit underwhelming. Randy’s stunt is given no explanation as to why it would amaze the crowd. The story’s final detail may go over the head of some of the readers. The story’s length lends itself to the five-year-old and above kids. Toddlers would find the pictures delightful but the story might not hold their attention. My only complaint was that the font wasn’t the easiest to read on a mobile device.
