    "Bubba the cowboy prince is a fine recommendation as a children's western book. I gave a copy of it to my nephew for his last birthday and he told me that he loved it. He said that it was funny and he quoted back some of the more memorable lines in the book in a thick Texas accent. I am glad he liked it."

    "This is a great book for western kids to learn values that are becoming less and less present in western society. It teaches inherent self value, pacifism, and kindness, and these are values that are not only less present in western society but more needed because of social deviation. The book does it well, with familiar but lovable characters that imaginative children can relate to."
