Publisher's Summary

Loper and Sally May have left Slim to manage the ranch while they go off to visit the relatives for the holidays. But just when it begins to look like another boring bachelor Christmas with Slim, a storm blows in and the electric fence separating a herd of steer from the highway shorts out. Now, it's up to Slim, Viola, and the ranch's Security Division to jump into action! 

Things take a surprising twist when Slim comes down with a burning fever in the middle of the operation, but nobody, and especially not Miss Viola could have been ready for the even bigger surprise that transpires on the way to the hospital! Slim sings a song about cowboy cooking called "Maters and Taters" and Hank sings about "Christmas Cookies".

this might be my favorite Hank the Cow Dog

if it's not completely obvious this book contains a major change for our main characters and was so worth it.

Great new story! Laughed out loud!

What did you love best about The Big Question?

That Slim realized that he loved Viola and wanted to marry her

Who was your favorite character and why?

Hank, because his attempts at being in charge and smart, always backfire

What does John R. Erickson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

"Hearing" Hank in John Erickson's voice makes the story come alive! He is so talented at all the voices!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

We always laugh at Hank Stories---- this one has some especially funny spots

Any additional comments?

Hank the Cowdog books and audio books are so entertaining and you can always find one of the characters to relate to-- It is good, clean fun for the whole family to enjoy together---- listening to Hank Stories puts you in a happy frame of mind, and my kids even play them while going to sleep--- they promote happy dreams!

back ground music terrible

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The back ground music makes me get a pounding headache. Before I even said anything about it my daughter was complaining about it! It just goes on and on, never stopping.

How could the performance have been better?

Leave off background music!

Any additional comments?

Leave off background music!
