Leroy Ninker Saddles Up - a Literary Lunch

This lunch is also posted over at The Little Crooked Cottage as a Literary Lunch. Head over to the fabulous blog of four children's book authors and check out the wonderful Literary Interviews with Mr. Pig himself! And if you want to find out more about Leroy or are curious what he would pack if he was stranded on a desert island, head over to his special interview!

Meet Leroy, the dreamer who wanted to be a cowboy, from LEROY NINKER SADDLES UP written by Newbery Medal winning author Kate DiCamillo and illustrated by Chris Van Dusen.

Leroy is the lovable protagonist in this story, dreaming of being a cowboy just like the movie stars in the drive-thru movie theater he works at. But a cowboy is not a cowboy without a horse. Leroy sets out to buy a mighty horse but falls in love with Maybelline, an old four-toothed mare. When Maybelline disappears because of his negligence he must rescue the horse of his heart, and lasso loneliness for good. This heartfelt and hilarious book is a must-read for all ages!

We packed packed a lunch perfect for rescuing the horse of your dreams in our Easylunchboxes:
  • carrots for Maybelline, the horse
  • popcorn from the Bijou Drive-in Theatre concession stand Leroy works at
  • and a Leroy Ninker Salami Sandwich
