Adam does not think Cowboy Ninja Viking (written by A.J. Lieberman and illustrated by Riley Rossmo) has broad appeal.

Bite Notes

  • If you have insomnia like the Kid in Outlawed or just find yourself staying up too late reading, try brewing some lemon balm tea.
  • To quench your thirst after visiting the desert of West Texas, mix yourself up a Corvette Summer.
  • Mosey through Cowboy Ninja Viking with a fresh jar of Pickled Mixed Vegetables from The Cowboy’s Cookbook by Beverly LeBlanc. Like the triplets of CNV, Each bite brings a different flavor to the salty, sweet, sour, and spicy mix.
