    Rail-thin Slim wakes up from a nap in a scrubby canyon to find a coyote—curiously wearing a mini version of his own denim-and-vest outfit—who asks him to deliver a letter to the sheriff of Fire Gulch City. The wily critter sweetens the deal by offering Slim his fancy blue hat, and then hightails it before Slim can turn down the offer. So Slim makes his way from town to town in search of Fire Gulch City, averting disaster in the unlikeliest of fashions. His hat swallers up a flood and a tornado, and he then unleashes them to quench a fire and foil a bank robbery respectively. Wouldn't you know it, by the time Slim gets to Fire Gulch, he's become the very sheriff that the coyote sent the letter to in the first place. Long on text, Langdo's quirky tall tale has the kind of grand whoppers you'd expect and a touch of heart that surprises. Visually, the dusty, appealing artwork has plenty of fine details for kids to get lost in while their ears soak up Slim's crowd-pleasing exploits. Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.
