I Want to be a Cowgirl by Jeanne Willis

A laugh-out-loud delight. The story centres on a young girl who dreams of swapping her city life for the rolling prairie, and has a fun twist at the end. The rhythmic and lively text is superbly complemented by Tony Ross’ quirky, comic illustrations. In this little girl’s world, a washing line becomes a lasso, a banana turns into a six-shooter, and a mangy scrapyard dog is a piebald mare, and… ‘What’s so wrong with that?’ she asks her daddy.

Suitable for ages three to six (Andersen Press, PB, £5.99).
