Stories of the Wild West Gang

Author(s): Joy Cowley

Chapter Books

Michael's aunt, uncle and cousins are moving to his neighborhood and he can't wait. Wherever they go, adventure follows! They're the wacky Wild West Gang. 'These are delightful stories of Michael, the son of buttoned-down fun-hating parents, getting down and dirty with his mad cousins, and their devil-may-care parents. The Wests are all about old fashioned, innocent fun, their days packed with picnics and pandemonium, mud and mayhem, not a battery-operated toy or computer screen in sight. These are rollicking reads, perfect for an adult to enjoy with a child, or for newly confident readers to chortle over.' - John McIntyre, The Children's Bookshop/Radio NZ reviewer
