Reviews

K-Gr 3‘This easy reader relates the adventures of 16-year-old Bill Cody as he goes to work for the Pony Express. He is chased by thieves, caught in terrible weather, and stalked by wolves, none of which are mentioned in his letters home. The story is fast paced, exciting, and filled with terrific illustrations. Bolognese's use of heavy black outlined figures, often surrounded only by a large expanse of white page, is very effective. Unfortunately, a serious error appears. Bill travels from Red Buttes to Three Crossings station. When he arrives, he's told that a rider is sick and he needs to ride an additional 75-mile stretch. The text then states that, ``Seven hours later, Bill made it to Three Crossings.'' Readers are bound to be perplexed by this statement and will be shuffling back through the pages to see what they missed. Too bad.‘Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, ID
