Product Description
***#1 KINDLE (US) BESTSELLING CHILDREN'S PICTURE BOOK (SEPT. 2013)***
********#1 KINDLE (US) BESTSELLER FOR AGES 4-8! (JUNE 2013)*********
 
No outlaw could draw as fast as Lightning Larry. But what really terrified those bad men was that peculiar gun of his. It didn't shoot bullets. It shot light. And Larry always aimed for the heart.
 
Can Larry save the town of Brimstone from Evil-Eye McNeevil's outlaw gang? Find out in this rip-roaring original tale of a gunfighter with a huge smile and a hankering for lemonade.
