School Library Journal - 05/01/2014 K-Gr 3—This wordless tale of a Wild West showdown has plenty of surprises. Coyote breaks out of a sleepy jailhouse and heads for the hills. When the donkey sheriff closes in on his bounty, a standoff ensues. The flight of a flitting ladybug offers a mesmerizing distraction, and the foes put down their pistols, strike a truce, and even share a campfire seafood feast. Now the sheriff's posse is in hot pursuit of both renegades. When the two friends teeter at the cliff's edge, a swarm of ladybugs returns to lift them over the abyss. Dorémus's cross-hatched pencil illustrations, in dusty shades of yellow and orange, reflect the arid landscape. While this chase-and-escape story poses more questions than answers, readers will enjoy the dreamlike journey.—Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
