Publisher's Summary

There's something spooky going on at the ranch! When Halloween arrives, Hank - the self-appointed Head of Ranch Security - has got his hands full of adventure. First there's a problem with the Tricker Trees. Then the ranch is invaded by two skeletons, a witch, and a pirate. And when Hank goes to investigate a strange sound in the cake house, he's sure it can only be one thing...a ghost. Can Hank rid the ranch of this unwanted visitor? Or is he destined to be spooked for good?

Wallace the Buzzard makes his singing debut doing a number called "Buzzard Love" and a chorus of ghosts sing an old Shaker hymn called "Followers of the Lamb".

Hot dog: Don't miss out on any of Hank the Cowdog's adventures.

What did you love best about The Case of the Halloween Ghost?

We enjoy his subtle humor and dogs eye view.

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

All of his character voices are perfect.

John R. Erickson Talent Knows No Bounds

The man writes his own stories, performs them with a different voice for each character, and writes and performs his own original songs. Having grown up on a farm with dogs, John R. Erickson's stories give humorous explanations for why dogs do what they do. These stories also give children an excellent base for logical thought progression and are very entertaining while they do it.

A laughter filled family freindly Halloween story.

A blast from the past that never gets old no matter old you are, Hank the Cowdog is a laugh for the whole family.

This little two hour story will charm your socks off as Hank and his buddy, Drover, try to protect the ranch from ghosts that show up on Halloween night. Get ready for bone headed plans, silly misunderstandings, conversations that go in circles, and two dogs trying to figure out what exactly Halloween is anyway.

The book is narrated by the author who does a fantastic job and he even wrote in two little songs in there that is played to music and other sound effects. It's still impressive and still holds up great considering Hank the Cowdog used to just be on cassette tapes.

The book is highly recommended to anyone who has ever owned an especially goofy dog and has laughed in wonder at what exactly goes on between the ears sometimes. This story is also all around family freindly and thematic to Halloween, so it's a great two hour distraction during the month of October.
