Product Description

From Booklist

Ages 4-7. Hillerman, best known for his adult mysteries with a Southwestern setting, makes a game try at writing a picture book for kids, and although there are kinks, he does better than a number of other adult writers who've tried the genre and better than the ubiquitous celebrity "authors." The real reason this works, however, is Franklin's artwork. The Navajo illustrator draws swirling, lively, cartoon-style pictures in ink and watercolor that are both mischievous and fun. The story stars Buster Mesquite the burro who loses his job and starts a cowboy band, teaming up with a rock-and-roll coyote, a wildcat cowgirl who plays the fiddle, and a crow that can belt with the best of them. The band scares a bunch of outlaws in a plot element that provides a little excitement but doesn't make much sense in terms of movement to the happy conclusion. What does work here is the energy, the wit of the art, and the satisfying cowboy milieu. Ilene Cooper

My grandson is sure he will be in a band someday so this was a great book for him. He just turned 6 and he's already got his guitar, mic stand and mic.

Not very good, but plenty loud Jan. 7 2002
By Nancy Tandberg - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Tony Hillerman has assembled four down and out cowboy band wannabees, faintly reminiscent of some other musicians from Brementown, but perfectly at home among the cactus and mesas of the Southwest. Buster Mesquite's Band isn't very good, but it's plenty loud, and they are destined for adventure on their quirky journey to fame and fortune, helped along the way by their unabashed enthusiasm for their music and some plain old dumb luck. Those notorious bandits they stumble upon don't stand a chance when Buster's Band dazzles, or rather startles, them with their latest tune.
Ernest Franklin's energetic illustrations make every page an eyeful that enhances Hillerman's spare and witty style of storytelling. Buster's Band gets a definite A for effort.

A Tony Hillerman tale Dec 30 2012
By Rachel E. Mitchell - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A short book and fun to read. Hillerman was always good and this is no exception. It is not the well written and more complex novel we would expect from him, but well worth the time to read it.
