Meet Barb, a clever cactus with a sense of adventure, who thinks that nothing ever changes in the desert, until she takes the leap of a lifetime.

Join the most exciting jumping cholla you'll ever meet as she jumps from her home cactus onto an unsuspecting coyote, and from there ends up hitching rides all across the country.

Guy Porfirio's hilarious illustrations will make readers giggle as they watch the dismay and confusion on the faces of the folks Barb encounters as she deflates rafts and pops balloons in her merry wake.

Kids will be to read this laugh-out-loud picture book over and over again.
