Ol’ Jimmy Dollar is Slim Randles’ first children’s book. An award-winning author and syndicated columnist from Albuquerque, Randles is known for his adult books but this kids’ story has been rolling around in his brain for years. It is about Jimmy and his dogs’ - Utensil, A-Frame, and Awesome. Cowboys and Cowgirls will love this simple, cute tale. The book was illustrated by award-winning artist, Jerry Montoya of Grants, New Mexico. The book is funny and has a Glossary of Terms in the back so parents will know what some of the cowboy words mean.
The book is for kids K-3 grades and is even better when parents read it with children. Ol’ Jimmy Dollar makes for sweet dreams and if you have a dog even better!
The book sells for $24.95, and is available in local bookstores and Amazon.
