Hey, Crafty Gal! Shouldn't Torrey be wearing a cowboy hat, a vest, a six-shooter, and some chaps? Just saying.
This reminded moi of the cowboy (and Native American) who were toy figures but became real thanks to a magic cabinet. I am, of course, talking about the classic children's tale, The Indian in the Cupboard, by Lynne Reid Banks. Naturally, we have a book trailer, plus the book (and its sequels) is (are) available to check-out in our Evergreen Indiana online catalog.

P.S. "Prairie Lullaby," composed by Billy Hill and recorded by Michael Nesmith, appeared on his (Nesmith's) LP Pretty Much Your Standard Ranch Stash (1973). Great country western tune any cowboy (or cowgirl, or even cow-kitty) would be proud to sing by the campfire to his or her youngster at bedding-down time.
