Beginning with Big Sky Blues in 1988, Robert Sims Reid wrote five police procedurals set mostly in the fictional town of Rozette, Montana. The three books in the middle of the series featured a detective named Leo Banks and these novels were bookended by two featuring Ray Bartell, who first appeared as a patrolman in Big Sky Blues and then as a detective in Reid's last book, Wild Animals, which was published in 1996. All five are excellent books that sound completely authentic, due in part to the fact that Reid is a very good writer and also to the fact that he worked for many years as a police officer in Missoula, Montana, which often sounds a lot like Rozette.

When introduced in Big Sky Blues, Bartell was party to a tragic incident that followed him the rest of his career. One night while Bartell and his partner were on patrol, and while Bartell's partner was investigating a suspicious situation in an abandoned building, a troubled person got the drop on Bartell. Bartell believed he had convinced the man to give up his gun and surrender, but as the man was about to do so, Bartell's partner emerged from the building, saw the situation from a distance, and shot and killed the man.

The incident has haunted Bartell for years and caused some of his fellow officers to question his judgment. But over the course of twelve years, he has risen to the rank of detective and has proved his worth to the department.

Now, a major slimeball named Merle Puhl, who lives in Rozette, is running for the U.S. Senate from Montana. Another gasbag, who used to be the President of the United States, is coming to Rozette to campaign for Puhl. This means that the Rozette P.D. will be working in conjunction with the Secret Service and other federal agencies to insure the safety of the former president. Bartell is detailed to work with the Feds.

The candidate, and hence the Feds, are particularly worried about an alleged eco-terrorist named Henry Skelton, an ex-con who lives mostly in the woods and simply wants to be left alone. Skelton is suspected of blowing up a helicopter belonging to a logging company that is raping the nearby wilderness. While there's no proof that Skelton committed the crime, the campaign has identified him as a potential threat and Ray Bartell is supposed to check him out. His clear, but unspoken instructions, are to make sure that Skelton is neutralized until the visit of the ex-president is over.

Being a good cop and a decent human being as well, Bartell is troubled by the lack of any proof that Skelton is guilty of blowing of the helicopter or that he constitutes any sort of a threat to the candidate, his campaign, or the former president. He attempts to deal with the situation in a way that ensures the safety and the rights of all of the parties involved, Henry Skelton included. This suggests to some people that Bartell might be a bit too soft to be a "real" cop, which echoes the charge against him from the case twelve years earlier.

In spite of the criticism, Bartell treads carefully between the Feds, his local bosses, the slimy pols and Henry Skelton himself. Inevitably, problems will result and the result is an engaging tale of a good man trying to do the right thing in a world that appears not to be much interested in the right thing.

Robert Sims Reid has created a cast of memorable characters and put them into motion in a setting and a story that has the considerable ring of truth. One can't help but empathize with a number of these characters, even though their interests and objectives don't always coincide. But, of course, that's the way the world often works in real life.

Sadly, after completing this book, Reid apparently did not ever write another. When asked in 2002 whether there might ever be another novel featuring Leo Banks or Ray Bartell, Reid demurred and suggested that the books were a lot of fun to write but that they didn't pay all that well. That was a tragedy on at least two levels: As good as these books are, and as much critical acclaim as they received, Robert Sims Reid is another of those authors who deserved much wider recognition and much greater financial success than he may have enjoyed. It's also a loss for anyone who loves crime fiction, because as much fun as these books might have been to write, they're even more fun--and more rewarding--to read.
-Page 1: lion's "hair"
-Page 2: lizard's "bumpy" skin
-Page 3: dolphin's "smooth" skin
-Page 4: tree frog's "sticky pads" on fingertips
-Page 5: koala's "fuzzy" body

I like this book because it exposes my daughter to photos of lizards and tree frogs. I don't want her to be scared of reptiles or amphibians just because they aren't fuzzy. At first, she was a little scared of the tree frog picture, but now she's much better and it is her most favorite page, because she likes touching the sticky pads of the tree frog page.
My daughter loves touch-and-feel books, so I have quite a few. This one follows the formula "this is a [insert animal name] it [insert description of how it feels]" Rather boring to read. Also, the dolphin, which is supposed to be "slippery" is actually quite fuzzy in this edition. I purchased this book specifically because it had a tree frog with sticky pads. I've not seen another touch-and-feel book with a sticky texture, so I think I would still buy this again. Over time, dust does get attracted to the sticky pads, though. It's not a bad book, there are just many better options out there (Priddy's 4 volume touch and feel zoo/baby/farm/pets animal books are fabulous).
This isn't the best touch & feel book we own, but it is a nice addition. There is a lion with a thick, furry mane; a lizard with "bumpy" skin, although it doesn't feel all that bumpy to me; a dolphin with skin that feels like craft foam; a frog with sticky toes (my favorite); and a furry koala which I think is too similar in texture to the lion. However, my daughter (currently 7 months) seems to like the lizard and koala pages the best. I took off one star because I would have liked a better variety of textures, and the lizard's skin is barely raised at all. We like the Usborne Touchy-Feely books and the Tiger Tales "My First Touch and Feel" books as well. I would probably purchase other DK Touch & Feel books in the future.
At 10 months my daughter became fascinated with our house cat but he wouldn't sit around long enough for her to poke at him so we decided to get her the next best thing -- touch & feel books! Having already purchased Kitten and Pets from the Touch and Feel line of books, we ran out of house cats to read about so we decided to buy this to expand the cat topic. Wild Animals features a hairy lion, a rough lizard, a smooth dolphin, a sticky tree frog and a furry koala. My daughter doesn't like the tree frog at all =] She'll turn away from it, shake her head and try to turn the page to the next animal. I like that there's a variety of animals represented: a mammal, a reptile, an animal from the sea, etc.
Our ten month old is currently very interested in "interactive" reading and this fits the bill. She will sit there scratching the bumpy parts or pulling on the hairy ones and will ask to be read this book multiple times throughout the day.

The book is five pages long and includes:
- hairy lion with long hair on the lion's mane
- bumpy lizard with a bumpy panel on lizard's skin
- smooth dolphin with a smooth soft panel on dolphin's side
- sticky tree frog with small sticky circles on the frog's fingertips
- soft koala bear with short soft fur on koalas back
Although this is definitely a used book (of which I was aware when I bought it), it is one of my toddler's favorites when we need a quiet activity. It was an Easter gift and now resides in our diaper bag and is great when I need him to sit still, quietly for a few minutes. The touch and feel is intriguing enough that he will look through the book a few times in one sitting, although the "sticky" of the frog toes is now mostly just dirty from being touched (it arrived that way) and not really sticky anymore. My little guy doesn't seem to care, so I guess it's not that big of a deal.
