About the Book

Leroy "Doodlebug" Barnstable likes to call himself the quickest draw in the west—with a crayon. It’s 1923 and Doodle is on the run from a couple of abusive cousins. He stumbles into a travelling Chautauqua show where it’s easy to get lost in a crowd—but also easy to lose your heart. This funny and endearing novel by Governor General’s Award willing novelist Glen Huser will make an absorbing read for fourteen and fifteen year olds, boys and girls alike.
