Cowboy Gus is cured of a bad case of gullibility by listening to
three tall tales.
Poor Cowboy Gus! He believes everything the other cowboys tell him,
so he gets teased all the time. To cure his terrible case of
gullibility, Gus visits Fibrock, a town full of liars. There he
encounters Hokum Malarkey, who tells him three outrageous
stories?while relieving him of all his money. But Gus doesn''t
mind. If he can honestly say the words ?I don''t believe it,"
he''ll be cured forever.
With extravagant humor and lively language, Maxine Schur presents
three tall tales within a frame story, each one just right for the
chapter-book audience. Andrew Glass''s hilarious illustrations
perfectly depict the hapless hero and the other larger-than-life
characters that populate these wild and woolly adventures.
