"The popular nursery rhyme 'This Old Man' gets a fresh twist in this picture book filled with rhyming and counting fun... Clever use of alliteration and rhyme, as well as laugh-out-loud funny tongue-twisters, complement the singsong nature of the story, making this an ideal book for both storytimes and one-on-one sharing. The bright, lively cartoon art complements the story, blending likability with silliness, and is sure to encourage readers to sing along." --School Library Journal "Counting and silly sounds merge in this boisterous Wild West riff on 'This Old Man.' ... A rowdy sing-along that may inspire kids' own musical improvisations." -Publishers Weekly
