Meet a city girl with a big Wild West dream.

"I don't want to be a good girl-
Good girls have no fun.
I can't play quiet games indoors,
I love the rain and sun.
I don't want to be a girly girl
Who likes to sit and chat.
I just want to be a cowgirl, Daddy,
What's so wrong with that?"

From the window of a high-rise city apartment, a little girl imagines a very different view and dreams of a very different life, but does it have to be just a dream?

The big city meets the wild Wild West in Jeanne Willis's lyrical text, accompanied by hilarious illustrations from Tony Ross.

In this pert, pint-size take on "Don't Fence Me In," a spunky narrator rejects being "a girly girl" and the cushy urban life in "our twenty-story flat" and tells her uptight, apparently single dad that she yearns for the Wild Wild West.
