Where Would Cows Hide? Give Away!


MY REVIEW:

What happens when identical 11-year-old twins spend two weeks on their grand-parents’cattle farm? Oh, the usual lizard hunts, pasture exploration and creek bed adventures would make for a nice story. However, D.C. Ste wart adds a bit of a twist, bec ause when Brad and Charlie arrive at the farm, they find out that their Grandpa is dealing with the mysterious disappearance of his cows! Can the boys help? Well, their younger sister Zoey might prove to be even more helpful…if the boys will just listen to her!

D.C. Stewart has written a delightful adventure for the young readers in your life. She incorporates the realistic agitation that exists between siblings, and she even captures the parents’ and grandparents’ agitation when the children disobey or ague over something trivial. Yet the boys persist in their clue-gathering adventure, because they have figured out who the rustlers are! They just have to figure out a way to tell their grandparents before their parents return to take them home!

This book would make a great Summer read for the children in your life, and it could also be used as a read aloud story for a long trip. If the young readers in your life are stirred to adventure by the great outdoors, then you want to check this story out! You can purchase a copy here today!
