The Watermelon Patch Mystery (Hank the Cowdog)  Jul 21, 2008
"Books are boring, Grandma," stated my Wii wielding, six -year-old grandson. Thems fightin' words for a retired elementary teacher. I knew Hank would help out. We played the CD on the drive to the airport. My grandson is now a captivated fan. Will be transfering from CD to books on next visit! Hank is my hero! (Well, John R. Erickson is my hero.)
Almost  Sep 18, 2007
Erickson's almost back to the top of his form. This is funny, the jokes are fresh, and the character voices are good,. I was glad to see the return of an old friend--Eddie the Rack. Drover's always good for a laugh, and Slim. After the fiasco of "Kitty Cheater", I was pretty shaken up, but "Watermelon Patch" was refreshing.
A delightful departure from the ordinary Hank format  Jun 30, 2006
Just when I was convinced that John Erickson was stuck forever on his rigid formula of Hank the Cowdog books that always had 12 chapters lasting between 9 and 15 minutes apiece in their audiobook format, he comes and surprises me with an *audio only* series of shorter stories. Having enjoyed Hank since childhood and never having seen any Hank stories that departed from Erickson's normal formula, I didn't know quite what to expect, but I needn't have worried. It's a thoroughly enjoyable story with plenty of laughs.

The CD is divided into 14 miniature chapters lasting about 5 minutes apiece. Hank is at his usual blundering, conceited, and thoroughly dense best, falling for a prank that gets him in trouble with Sally May, having inane conversations with his sidekick Drover, being tempted by temptations, and once again teaming up with Eddy the Rac, the raccoon character introduced in Book #23, with predictable results. Sally May is growing watermelons to sell, but with hungry raccoons running amok in the watermelon patch, Hank is resolved to find a way to stop them... or at least a way to get the credit for it!

Aside from having a good plot as Hank books go, this story benefits from the short chapters and overall shorter duration. Honestly, there are a number of regular Hank volumes that would have benefited from this format, as they are sometimes fortified with copious stale dialog, meaningless descriptions, and lame jokes that seem to have been devised as filler so the audiobook would have 12 chapters and be at least 2 hours long. The Case of the Black-Hooded Hangmans and The Case of the Swirling Killer Tornado come to mind in this regard.

But I have to give credit to John Erickson... after more than 20 years he can still write a good Hank story! Buy it and enjoy some smiles and laughs.
