moonlightMoonlight Madness  (AR 4 .5)

by John R. Erickson

This is one of the books in the Hank the Cowdog Series.  It is a funny tale that happens when Hank and Slim are driving down the road in a pickup and they see stray dogs barking up a tree.  Slim sends Hank to drive them off “his ranch.”  In the tree they find a baby raccoon that Slim names Eddie.  Eddie ends up tricking Hank twice in a row although the first time Hank swears it will never happen again although in other books he gets tricked quite a bit.

Eddie is by far my favorite character because he’s clever, sleeps only in the daytime and can’t fall asleep at night (Hi, Mom!).  He’s mischievous and whenever he’s around Hank gets tricked and gets in trouble for all the damage that Eddie does.

This is a good book whether you are a cat or dog lover.  There’s also a cat in here and he gets Hank in trouble often too.  Dog lovers will love Hank and his slow but sweet buddy Drover. 

I listened to this as an audio book.  That’s a great choice for sound effects and songs that don’t come across the same in a print book.  

As Eddie would say, “Hey, listen.  I’ve got a deal for you.”  Pick up this audio book to keep your mind busy while you’re doing chores.
