The escapades of our favorite plucky armadillo continue with this latest book in Mary Brooke Casad’s popular series. Bluebonnet always manages to teach youngsters an important lesson, and this time, it’s all about preserving and sharing history.
In the latest book of the Bluebonnet Series, our favorite armadillo explores the Ocean Star Museum in Galveston, Texas. On the boardwalk at the Galveston harbor, Bluebonnet meets Red, the knowledgeable brown pelican, who persuades her to follow a class on their tour of the museum. Bluebonnet secretly follows the group and learns about the offshore oil system, life on a drilling rig, and offshore oil history.
Bluebonnet, the armadillo, is on her first visit to the Texas state fair. Things get exciting when she is sent on a search through the fair to look for clues to help her find her Aunt Armadilly. Along the way, Bluebonnet is mistaken for a football during a Longhorn versus Sooner Cotton Bowl game and makes friends with Joe Bob, a rabbit who has lost his boy.
After singing the Texas State song, Bluebonnet admires the Goddess of Liberty statue on top of the state capitol dome. Filled with pride, she wishes that she could climb to the top to see the statue up close. To her amazement, someone tells Bluebonnet that he has been to the top, more than three hundred feet above the ground!
