We recently unearthed 15 boxes of books in my dad's old storage building. They are all from the 1970s and earlier. Some of them are my books from childhood, so I have to hang on to a few of them. This is one that I remember enjoying. From the book:

"This light-hearted spoof on the 'cowboy western' will please even the book-shy youngster. Clyde is a slapstick, offbeat, lovable hero, and his triumphant encounter with the 'bad guys' will tickle young readers. A real "yarn"--told in fewer than 150 words."… (més)

I snagged this at the library book sale last year and finally got around to reading it. I figured it would be good for a laugh, and it was... kind of. However, most of this book was just dreadfully tedious. My favorite parts were looking for the Barbie merchandise plugs and learning Barbie's last name (Roberts, if you were wondering).

I'm convinced that the person who wrote this thing hated Barbie and availed herself of every opportunity to take not-so-subtle digs at Barbie's intelligence. For example, in the perennial classic titled "Barbie's Birthday," Barbie philosophically muses, "Tomorrow she would be a whole 365 days older than she was today.

I was excited to find this particular book because it's a book from the early Barbie years. It gets many bonus points because Barbie isn't blonde, and it's just exciting to have older books. Barbie is babysitting two troublesome twins, and trying to write a story for homework. Finally, after two hours of chasing the twins around, she gets them to bed- and writes her story about her night's adventures!
