Let's get larger than life! When the biggest herd of cattle west of the Mississippi disappears during the worst drought in history, it's weird. But when that herd transforms into ghosts, leveling everything in its path…well, now we're into Pecos Bill tall-tale country. Young Missy Cougar-Wildcat has always wished she could live an adventure as big as her home state, and when the roughest, rowdiest cowboy of all enters her world, she quickly find herself up to her braids in a brand new hoot-n-holler legend packed with action, laughs…and the world's largest prairie dog!

Hints, Tips, and Tricks
- "Keep it moving!"
- Tip by Bari Newport, Florida Repertory Theatre, Fort Myers, Fla.
- "Instead of using the fabric and puppets suggested by the script, we used a slide show of pictures on a screen. This worked really well and did not detract from our simple setÑin fact, the audiences told our technician how much they liked the screen. There are a lot of useful free pictures out there, or you can draw your ownÑthe more cartoony, the better."
- Tip by Ricki Marking-Camuto, West County Family YMCA, Chesterfield, Mo.
