Alice from Dallas
by Marilyn Sadler and Ard Hoyt




Overview -
Alice is the most rootin', tootin' cowgirl in all of Dallas . . . Pennsylvania. Each day she puts on her favorite boots and hat and sets off on her stick pony for school with a "Yippee ki-yay " Alice is used to being the only cowgirl around, until Lexis from Texas arrives at school one day. Lexis seems to be a real cowgirl, with her fancy hat, jingling spurs, and lasso tricks. Alice decides there's only one way to know who the best cowgirl is: a school-yard showdown at high noon But will Alice learn there's room for more than one cowgirl in town?
Bestselling author and illustrator Marilyn Sadler and Ard Hoyt team up to create a rollicking tale of friendship that will have readers dancing the Texas Two-Step and shouting "Yee-haw," no matter where they're from.

Praise for Alice from Dallas
"The comic watercolor-and-ink illustrations don't miss a beat in capturing the amusing rivalry that turns into friendship...The clever ending is a yee-haw moment that will rope in readers as quick as tumbling tumbleweeds."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Hoyt's bright ink-and-watercolor illustrations gleefully capture the girls' enthusiasm for all things western, from their fringed cowgirl blouses to the bandannas tied jauntily around their necks. A lively story for cowgirls everywhere, with a breezy lesson about jealousy."
--Booklist
