Cowboy Ned & AndyBook - 2006
On a cattle drive in the desert on the night before Cowboy Ned's birthday, his horse Andy goes in search of a birthday cake, which he thinks will make Ned's birthday complete. It's Cowboy Ned's birthday! His trusty dapple gray steed, Andy, knows that the best thing to have on your birthday is a birthday cake. While Cowboy Ned sleeps soundly, Andy wanders across the desert in search of a birthday surprise for his friend and along the way discovers what really makes a birthday special. Echoing the simple yet graceful cowboy poetry of yore, David Ezra Stein's picture-book debut celebrates best friends.
