Publisher's Summary

It's Valentine's Day on the ranch but bachelor-cowboy Slim Chance doesn't know it. Sally May tells him to forget about the cows and "Go to town and buy a nice gift for Miss Viola!" Slim hates to shop, but he goes to town (with the dogs, of course) and buys a nice box of candy for Miss Viola. But on the way to Viola's house, Hank and Drover take an interest in the candy and...will there be a Happy Valentine's Day on the ranch? Slim sings a bachelor's opinion in his "Valentine's Song."

Hot dog! Don't miss out on any of Hank the Cowdog's adventures.

Short But Charming

I am a devout fan Hank the Cowdog. I am a new member, and the deals on Hank audiobooks are superb, far better than buying CD's. In this story, the author further develops on Drover's and Slim's personalities. It also introduces a few new characters, which will please dog fans. Overall, this is a must-have for any Hank fan.

Laughed out loud!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, all the Hank the Cowdog stories are funny and clean and enjoyable by adults as well as children--

Who was your favorite character and why?

Hank is my favorite- he thinks he's so smart-- but it's clear that he is 'deluded'

Have you listened to any of John R. Erickson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is one of his short stories-- but all of them are entertaining and light

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed! Hank stories are great 'escapes' from the problems of a day! A little laughter helps keep our outlook bright!

Review from the Back of the Car-11yr and 9yr old

Hank is the best! We love listening to these stories. He makes us laugh ourselves silly! This story wasn't the best Hank book. It seemed to start slow, but in true Hank fashion, by the end we were all laughing in the car. Still worth a listen, especially if you are a chocolate lover!

Enjoyed!

Would you listen to The Valentine's Day Robbery again? Why?

Yes.... we love Hank the cowdog and found it to be good listening for children.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Valentine's Day Robbery?

We loved it when he finally got to have a chocolate out of the box as he longed for the whole day!

Have you listened to any of John R. Erickson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

they are all very good listening for the children. I like the fact that there is no swearing or obscene remarks in hte story line.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes
