Slim Jim Watkins, like most cowboys, is a hardworkin', lasso-wieldin' cowhand. All Slim Jim Watkins wants to do at the end of a long day roping cattle is to ease out of his saddle, throw off his clothes, and take a deep snooze. But little by little, Slim Jim Watkins finds that his old way of getting ready for bed just won't do. Before it's all over with, he decides it's better just to fall down on his bedroll, boots and all.This beautifully illustrated, amusing story with its anticipatory suspense will delight kids and grown-ups alike, and everyone will be charmed by the nightly entourage of desert animals who play a key role. That is, until Slim Jim Watkinslearns a thing or two and starts to sleep with his boots on. Laurie Lazzaro Knowlton is an Ohio native who lived in Houston for seven years. An elementary-school teacher for fifteen years, Laurie and her husband have since moved back to an Ohio farm.
