Book Ordering Information

For Charlie, it's hard work being King of the Ranch. There's napping to do, food to taste, and car rides to take - it's downright exhausting! But it's not all work - there's lots of play too! There's always a game to join and a goal to score. From football to soccer to basketball, Charlie is ready to jump in and lend a paw to help the underdogs get the winning point. While Charlie may be an all-star on the field, when it comes to his favorite kind of ball, he has to wait until dinnertime. And at the table, Charlie is the MVP! Ree Drummond - the Pioneer Woman herself - delivers a slam dunk with this hilarious new story about Charlie - a basset hound who is truly in a league of his own.
