An American Bookseller Pick of the Lists

"This collection will practically leap from the shelf into many an eager hand. Its large format, attractive layout, and appealing illustrations will beckon to young readers." -- School Library Journal

Every child should grow up hearing the tales of our most famous folk heroes. Here award-winning author Robert D. San Souci and illustrator Andrew Glass bring five American legends to life. Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox, John Henry, Slue-Foot Sue and Pecos Bill, as well as Old Stormalong and Strap Buckner, have inspired generations of Americans. These vivid stories, told with humor, spirit, and warmth, capture the flavor of frontier America while remaining accessible to young readers.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-5-- Tall tales are always popular with children, and this collection will practically leap from the shelf into many an eager hand. Its large format, attractive layout, and appealing illustrations will beckon to youngsters. The five stories--"John Henry," "Old Stormalong," "Slue-Foot Sue and Pecos Bill," "Strap Buckner," and "Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox"--are related in language that captures the flavor of frontier America while remaining accessible to children. Text and illustrations are exuberant; the robust heroes and heroines are bold but gentle souls who all come to a peaceful or an appropriate end. Especially endearing is the spread depicting a brawny Paul Bunyan holding the newborn Babe in his hands. An excellent choice for all collections. --Eve Larkin, Chicago Public Library
