ook Beginnings is a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader that asks you to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you're reading. Friday 56 is hosted by Freda's Voice and asks you to grab a book (any book), turn to page 56 or 56% in your ereader and share a non-spoilery sentence or two.
This week I'm featuring a favorite book from my childhood, The Phantom in the Mirror (Hank the Cowdog #20) by John R. Erickson. I recently reread it and had so much fun with it. It was just the laugh I needed during this crazy time we're living in.
About the Book
Pete warns Hank that a stray dog has invaded the ranch and is lurking inside the machine shed. Naturally, Hank goes to investigate, and sure enough, he finds the Phantom Dog--in an old mirror stored in the machine shed. But then Drover looks into the same mirror and sees a “Handsome Prince.” Holy smokes, it appears that two dogs have invaded the ranch!
It's me again, Hank the Cowdog.
I whined and whapped my tail, moved my front paws up and down, and even took the drastic action of jumping up on the yard gate - something I rarely do, for obvious reasons.

What have you been reading lately?
This book seems like it has an interesting premise. I like the quotes.ReplyDelete
Thanks for coming by, Breana! :)Delete
:D I haven't read a Hank the Cowdog book in forever!ReplyDelete
I hadn't either. It was so fun to revisit the series. :DDelete
Isn't it fun to revisit old favorites? But I have to say that somehow I've missed this series. Looks like a good one.ReplyDelete
It's a hilarious one. I have a dog that reminds me so much of Hank, lol. :)Delete
I love Hank the Cowdog books. I am not sure if I've read this one, however. I hope to revisit them with my grandson when he is a little older. My Friday quotes and a reviewReplyDelete
That'll be fun reading them with your grandson! :DDelete
If it's that much of a favorite, that makes me want to read it! :-) Happy weekend, stay safe!ReplyDelete
Happy weekend, Freda! Stay safe too! :)Delete
The cover is sooo cute - I have never heard of Hank, but he sounds like a great read - I'd like to try to find out more. Maybe my nieces and nephews would appreciate these books! Here is my Friday post. Hope you are safe and well x
I couldn't get enough of these books when I was a kid. :DDelete
Glad you enjoyed the reread. I stopped rereading books from my younger days as they never lived up to my memories of them, sadly, and I didn't want to ruin any more remembrances.ReplyDelete
It's such a bummer when that happens.Delete
These books are insanely popular at my library - I'd like to try one one of these days. :)ReplyDelete
