Giddy-Up, Daddy! is the newest imaginative picture book from celebrated cartoonist Troy Cummings. When rootin'-tootin' Daddy the "horse" is eyeballed by some rotten rustlers, it's all the kids can do to keep him out of the big lugs' lasso. What follows is a quick detour through a rodeo, a trip across a circus high wire, and a near-miss in the Rockies, till the kids don Mounty gear and capture the bad guys for good. A celebratory parade at sundown leads the kids and Daddy back home into Mom's waiting arms.
TROY CUMMINGS has been drawing and writing since he was just a small cowboy. His illustrations have appeared in newspapers and magazines, on Web sites, on frozen-fish-stick packages, and in hospital waiting rooms. This is his third picture book. He lives in Greencastle, Indiana, with his cat and his family.
