Meet six-year-old Tommy Johnson, Super Cowboy and Super Story-teller. Want to build a box to capture wild cats that roam the farm? How about tips on catching a greased pig at the fair, or teaching a stubborn lamb to avoid being trampled by angry milk cows? From the first paragraph, when Tommy explains why dogs are smarter than cats and why he needs a dog for a pet, he wins us over with his down-to-earth and humorous view of the world. With his clumsy new puppy, Tippy, and his troublesome lamb, Nosey, Tommy finds adventure everywhere. However, once Tommy begins school, things get complicated. He gets picked on by teachers and mocked by the other children. And then tragedy strikes. In the process of dealing with his grief, Tommy learns the meaning of true friendship.
