Cowboy Sam and Those Confounded Secrets

Cowboy Sam and Those Confounded Secrets

by Kitty Griffin, Kathy Combs Illustrated by Mike Wohnoutka
Under Cowboy Sam's hat are more secrets than fleas on Doc Peeble's hound dog, more secrets than peppers on a chili pepper plant, and more secrets than spikes on a horny toad lizard. Just about everyone in the town of Dry Gulch wants to tell Sam a secret. But when his hat gets plum full of secrets and won't stay put on his head, Sam is bumfuzzled and bewildered. How can he keep all those secrets under wraps--and keep the townfolk from going crazy? Perfectly matched by Mike Wohnoutka's comic illustrations, this funny and unexpectedly touching tale will appeal to readers young and old alike.
