Wow, after a whole raft of Hank books, you'd think all the jokes would have been used, the punch lines beat to death, and more or less a repeat of the book before- after all there's only so much you can write about Hank, Drover and the gang on the ranch... right? Wrong! "The Ghosts of Rabbits Past" had me laughing the whole way through. Sure, they use some of the same ideas over again, but J.R. Erickson has a way of keeping it fresh and hilarious every time. I say, just buy this book and don't question it. It is side-splitting, like all the others. If you don't like it, well, then I'm afraid that there's no hope left for your literary world. Just kidding. But seriously... BUY THIS BOOK TODAY!
Erickson's books were fabulous read-alouds when our kids were young - enjoyed by the kids and the adults! They're getting read aloud again, this time to our grandkids, with newer books included. We make digital recordings so they can be listened to over and over! The laughter is really fun on those recordings! Thanks, John Erickson!
We added this new title to our library and so glad! What a great story - John Erickson delivers another hysterical adventure with Hank and the gang. These are wonderful stories with great lessons, funny (really funny) songs that everyone enjoys. Sometimes the label of "family fun" makes people think it will be for younger kids, not with Hank! Our favorite so far is The Case of the Tricky Trap, but this title is great as well!
I've been reading these books since third grade and there has never been a book not deserving five stars. The author of these books has a website, Hankthecowdog.com, where you can play games, download paper backs and audio books, and even send the author an email. Of course I 've already sent him one, but one thing is for sure. Erickson has done it again!
John Erickson just keeps turning out hilarious tales of good ole Hank! We enjoyed this one just as much as the first one we heard, and maybe more. Waiting till almost the end to find out what the rabbity ghosts had to do with the story didn't diminish the fun!
Pete the Barncat and Hank the Cowdog never get along, but when a coyote attack forces them to work together, Hank thinks it the end of the world. This funny book shows clearly the rivalry between cat and dog and the fact that working together isn't as impossible as people think. Who is the 'Ghost of Rabbits Past'? Read this book, and you'll be sure to laugh at the answer!
Well, after so many stories, it's a tricky line to walk between keeping it fresh and if it ain't broke..... Fun to listen to, especially when cowboy lack of brains meets up with cow brawn. Glad I added it to my collection.
