If you like Kate DiCamillo’s Mercy Watson series you will love this spin-off. It stars Leroy Ninker, a wanna-be cowboy, who works at a drive-in theater. When his co-worker mentions he has everything he needs to be a real cowboy except the horse he answers a want ad looking for a buyer of a horse “really cheap”. Well, it is love at first sight. Of course, Leroy has no idea how to take care of a horse so the adventure begins.
