Andy and Spirit Meet the Rodeo Queen by Mary Jean Kelso

Another great installment to the Andy and Spirit series by Mary Jean Kelso!

Andy and Spirit visit the Nevada State Fair where they get in a ride and then watch the day’s events. Andy gets to meet the rodeo queen and learns how to handle a lasso. Despite an unfortunate accident, the rodeo is a fun time for all.

Andy and Spirit Meet the Rodeo Queen is the latest book in Kelso’ popular Andy and Spirit series. What is great about this book is that the main character is a wheelchair bound kid who doesn’t let his handicap stop him. In addition, even the people he meets don’t focus on his wheelchair. They see Andy for Andy.

Kelso creates an excellent picture in this book for what it is like to attend a rodeo. Despite the fact that I’ve never been to one, I feel like I have after reading Andy and Spirit Meet the Rodeo Queen.

The artwork for all the Andy and Spirit books has been drawn by K.C. Snider. I like the pairing of Kelso and Snider, and hope it continues.  When an artist and writer work together on multiple projects it certainly makes a difference in the overall quality of the book and how enjoyable the reading experience is.

At the end of this book, the reader finds information on rodeos and rodeo events. There is also a short list of some popular rodeo websites.

What adventures will Andy and Spirit find next? I guess, I’ll just have to eagerly wait and see.
