Rango: The New Sheriff in Town
(Sterling, Jan. 28, 2011)
This is an adaptation of Paramount film starring Johnny Depp, Abigail Breslin and Bill Nighy, releasing Spring 2011. It is suitable for children aged 4 to 8 years old. An unlikely chameleon hero saves the day in this hilarious, Wild West adaptation of "Rango", Paramount's animated family feature film which releases Spring 2011. In this paperback 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 townsfolk to appoint him sheriff. Unfortunately, Rango blew into Dirt just as the town's water supply is inexplicably shut off - and the bank's reserves have been robbed. Everyone is counting on Rango to save the day and before he knows it, he embarks on the adventure of a lifetime, rounds up a posse and confronts the Wild West's outlaws as he tries to out the unlikely villain and restore water to Dirt. This slap-stick, high-noon showdown features full-colour photos plus the behind-the-scenes sketches and artwork used to create the special effects for the film.
