Reba Jo loves riding all over the wild prairie and roping any critter unlucky enough to cross her path. But when the spunky cowgirl finds herself in a mess of trouble, she's forced to strike a deal with a horned toad — he'll save her hide, but only if she grants him three favors. Reba Jo tries her darnedest to weasel out of her part of the bargain, but the clever horned toad won't let her off the hook. Reba Jo is at the end of her rope. Has she finally met her match? Jackie Hopkins's witty and spirited retelling of the classic tale of the frog prince — enhanced by Spanish words sprinkled throughout the text — transports young readers to the untamed, dusty prairie. Michael Austin's vibrant illustrations brilliantly capture these quirky characters and their sizzling Southwestern surroundings.
