This book is about four stinky cowboys and they do not want to take baths. They tried and tried but they could not do it. One day Jess brought a fire wagon to the stinky cowboys. Jess put in soap, rose perfume, and shampoo and sprayed them, and they liked it so much they stayed clean forever. I like this book because it has dogs and I like dogs. My favorite character is Jess. He's my favorite because he's a really good cowboy and he catches robbers. My favorite part is when Jess sprayed the hose at the four stinky cowboys. That was really funny. I think boys who are at least seven years old would like this book because it has cowboys in it. The boys who read this book would probably like the part about the fire wagon. Jess gets the hose from the fire wagon and sprays the stinky cowboys with water. It makes a funny picture with soap and a lot of bubbles.
