Rango: A Hero at Last

Paperback (Sterling Jan. 28, 2011)
This book is suitable for children aged 4 to 8 years old. An unlikely chameleon hero accidentally proves his mettle in this hilarious beginning reader adaptation of "Rango", Paramount's animated family feature film which releases Spring 2011. In this beginning reader adaptation of the film, a pet chameleon named Rango is stranded in the desert and finds his way to Dirt, a tumbleweeds town outside Las Vegas inhabited by hundreds of gun-slinging, ten gallon hat-wearing critters. Lost and lonely, Rango bravely straps on a pair of chaps and tells a tall tale that convinces the towns folk to appoint him sheriff. Not everyone buys his story though, especially a bully of a gila monster named Bad Bill who challenges Rango to a classic Western showdown. Before either creature can draw guns, the dreaded Red Tailed Hawk appears - and he's got his own lunch plans for Rango. By hook and by crook (and with a heap of luck), Rango manages to fell the Hawk, solidifying his Clint Eastwood-esque cowboy reputation. This slap-stick, high-noon "spotlight on" scene from the movie features full-colour photos plus some never-before-seen sketches and artwork used to create the special effects for the film.
