This time it's the truth--we swear! Joe Hayes is back with another unbelievable, astounding, and totally true tall tale, straight from his own childhood in the Arizona desert.

After saving a rattlesnake's life out in the desert one day, Joe discovers the snake has followed him back to his home. Of course there isn't much to do but keep the dangerous reptile as a pet! His dad is annoyed, the neighbors are terrified, but soon the friendly snake slithers his way into their hearts. A tall tale of cold-blooded love, this is no ordinary pet rattler. The snake cuddles at the foot of Joe's bed, plays in the yard, he even scares away a burglar and alarms the police. What a charmer!

He is the author of over twenty books for children and young adults. The New Mexico Library Association named Joe the Centennial Storyteller in 2010, a storyteller so good he only comes around once every one hundred years!
