Because I had no other crime and mystery books in my house, I had to read Hank the Cowdog. I hadn't ever read on of these books before, and now that I have, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have liked them when I was little either. It was written for children, though, so that could also be why I didn't enjoy it at all. I felt that there was a lot of unnecessary comments that didn't really add to the book itself, and the mystery part of it was very short-lived.

Hank shouldn't eat the liver that Albert was using for fish bait. Of course, he did, and he swallowed the hook. Then Slim fed him tons of dish soap to try and get him to puke the liver and fish hook back out. And Hank wasn't puking, even after Slim grabbed him up and swung him around and around and around. But then Slim puked. Finally, Hank puked up the liver and fish hook, and all was much better. But Sally Mae told Albert never ever go fishing again!

I'm not a particularly big fan of Hank the Cowdog. This one is about average as they go. Hank always seems to get himself into trouble.

If you enjoy Hank, Slim, Pete, and the other human characters, you will enjoy this book as well.

This was probably my favorite of the Hank the Cowdog books that I've read, though "Tuerto, the One-Eyed Killer Stud Horse is a close second. I laughed so hard at their efforts to rid poor Hank of that fish hook. Hank is troublesome yet lovable.

I read pretty much this entire series years ago after I descovered them in my elementary school libary. The plot, and characters are great. Plus these books are extremly funny. I loved this series then and I still love it.
