Sid Hausman, author of One Bullfrog and Cactus Critter Bash, has written another book filled with the lore and the music of the Old West. In a story featuring Handlebar Slim and his sidekick Washtub as cowboys, Emus and Owlhoots brings the thrilling days of yesteryear to life again -- just like the old times when we listened to the radio. A CD is included featuring 6 songs sung by Sid and friends.Reminiscent of the 1950s radio shows, Emus and Owlhoots stimulates the imaginations of the younger generation. Those of us raised on radio knew owlhoots were outlaws bound to be captured or run off by the good guys wearing white hats.Originally from Australia, emus are the large birds related to ostriches that do so well in the American Southwest. The song on the included CD "Radio Riders" refers to the old cowboy radio shows that Sid and his brother Gerry and grew up listening to.
