I absolutely love Hank the Cowdog. It's awesome and funny. I laugh so much when I listen to this. I like the audio books the best because John R. Erickson does a great job reading aloud. My dad loves these to, just sitting on the couch listening or on his way to work. I got this actually for his birthday. They are his favorite as well as mine.

This item was shipped punctually and was intact perfectly. A million thanks!

My 70+ mother gets a kick out of Hank the Cowdog, so this was a gift for her. Kids of all ages love old Hank!

THE CASE OF THE DEADLY HA-HA GAME was a lot of fun. I loved the robotic voice in which Hank revealed hired hand Slim Chance's darkest secrets, although as a loyal dog he was sworn not to do that. The strange, high-pitched voice with a squeakier under voice of Hank's central control was just as good, although its messages implied my favorite cowdog isn't playing with a full deck.

Pete the Barncat manages to get Hank into trouble -- of course. There are more of those delightfully daffy Abbott-and-Costello-like conversations between Hank and his little assistant, Drover. Does Hank behave shamefully during the Affair of the Purloined Steak? Absolutely!

The deadly Ha-Ha game is Hank's idea to save himself and Drover from becoming coyote food for brothers Rip and Snort. That their danger lasts for most of CDs two & three is Hank's fault. (If Hank ever learned from his mistakes, what would Mr. Erickson do for plots?) The perils of the pooches keep starting up again just when the listener thinks they might be safe at last. If you're at all familiar with this series, you'll understand why Hank is torn between facing the jaws of Rip and Snort or *gasp* the Wrath of Sally May. (His description of his master's wife made me laugh aloud, especially when he describes a power he suspects she has.)

I also love the rocket sound effects for when Hank, Drover, and Pete are speeding away. Hank's song, "Be A Winner," is a masterpiece of unsportsmanlike advice. Hank and Pete's descriptions of each other's dry food after tasting it made me laugh, too. No wonder that steak was such a temptation. I also got a kick out of Drover's attempts to avoid what Hank considers bad language (No "Darn!" allowed.)

Hank the Cowdog makes for fine family entertainment. Why not entertain yourselves tonight?

This is one of my favorite of the Hank the Cowdog books. I suppose the reason for this is that it features a lot of Drover, Hank's second in command on the ranch, and Pete the barn cat. Pete, per usual, get Hank and Drover into a lot of trouble and of course who should show up to dish out the trouble? Well our to favorite coyotes, Rip and Snort who, again, per usual, are looking for a doggie lunch.

Hank must use his brains and simply outfox the two coyote brothers because he sure can't outfight our out run them.

Hank the Cowdog books are excellent books to lure reluctant readers in. They are also top of the line entertainment for the entire family and are enjoyed by all ages. I check at our local libraries, out of curiosity, and found that more adults check these things out for themselves than kids do. At the school libraries they are one of the most popular series available...for all ages. I know few teachers who haven't read these things.

Anyway, does Hank finally outsmart Pete? Does Hank and Drover finally have a coherent conversation? Well, you have to read it to find out.

I do love these books.

This is a library find.

This is right up there with the best of the Hank books. Very funny, good suspense, nice character development, especially in Drover and Pete. Excellent Hank book.

We have heard all the Hank tapes, own most of them, and have listened to them many times. All are very good, here are some of the most excellent ones:
The one-eyed Killer Stud Horse
The Vampire Cat
Swirling Killer Tornado
Double-Bumblebee Sting
Haystack Kittens
Vanishing Fishhook
Hooking Bull

Of course all of them are wonderful. There is something to laugh out loud about in every tape.
Erickson deserves much more recognition than he gets for his exciting and funny tales that always emphasize courage, kindness, and mannerly behaviour.

Society places a lot of emphasis on kids reading, but I believe learning to listen quietly is just as important, in these times of short attention spans and overlapping noise. As such, I try to expose my kids to as many suitable audios as possible. We've heard literally hundreds of full-length audios.

Erickson's books are meant to be read aloud, and his reading of the Hank series is imcomparable to any other children's audio we've ever listened to--he blows them all away. He takes great pains to develop every character's distinct voice, and there is just nothing like hearing the author's interpretation of his work.

I highly reccomend the Hank the Cowdog books if you're a dog lover, or if you just enjoy good, clean humor and fun! The books
are written in Hank's perspective, which, I think, makes them funnier than if they weren't written in his persppective. He tries to talk "intelligent," but really he is actually quite, um,
well, to be to-the-point... DUMB. And Hank's conversations with Drover are priceless. If you don't have this book, you really should get it. This is one of my personal favorites.
My other faves are:
The Curse of the Incredible Priceless Corn Cob
The Case of the Missing Bird Dog
It's a Dog's Life
Every Dog Has His Day
The Case of the Fiddle Playing Fox
The Phantom in the Mirror
The Case of the Burrowing Robot
The Case of the Raging Rottweiler
...And too many more to list!...
