Hannah Mae O’Hannigan was born to be a buckaroo, the best cowgirl in the wild, wild west. How can you tame wild varmints when you live in the city? When her parents promise that she can visit Uncle Coot who lives in the West, Hannah Mae begins some serious training. She ties together the drapery cords and ropes her stuffed animals. She rounds up her herd of pet store hamsters and drives them through the house. At night she sings cowboy songs to serenade them to sleep. She even practices some fancy riding on her pony Sassafras. At last she heads out west to see Uncle Coot. Find out how all this training helps Hannah Mae make rodeo history.  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2006-2007)
