We were delighted to have Cowgirl Peg with us again in 2014, she was with us at the 2013 and 2009 Buckaroo Book Shop, part of the Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival. Our very first year, 2009, she assisted with our set-up, here she is with our crew, second on the right. Thanks Cowgirl Peg! Click on the small inset photo for detail.
is Book 5 of the "Cowgirl Peg" Series
From the Back Cover:
Watoosi is a rather odd-looking horse. He is embarrassed by his appearance and wished he looked like all the other horses. But he learns that being different equals being special. A great story with a wonderful message about self-esteem for young readers! Includes a photo of the real Watoosi!
Corinne Joy Brown
, a well-known Western novelist, has been a wonderful mentor for me in the publishing world. When she met Watoosi, she realized his story provided a wonderful addition to the Cowgirl Peg Book Series. She wrote the story, which I instantly loved. Her writing style and the wonderful "self-esteem" message in this book fit perfectly as the newest of the series which focuses on building character traits in young readers. Enjoy reading this wonderful story!"
