Sisters Red Tam and Green Tam are a mix between Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz and Evil Knievel, combining spunk with improbable physical prowess.

It is summer, school is out and the sisters are ready to live every day to the fullest. Helpful and fearless, they find themselves in great demand by the local villagers. They track down a thief, sail with Pegleg Peter to retrieve his prized grandfather clock from the clutches of a dragon, and rescue the Prince of Cats from Sneezy Simms, the roughest, toughest pirate in the whole world. Using their wits, strength and ingenuity the sisters accomplish the seemingly impossible, and they part from their adversaries the best of friends.

Besides pirates and dragons these exciting tales also feature animated wooden puppets, a troll, an evil hunter, a talking parrot and a clever monkey. The book contains three separate tales:

  • The Puppet, the Troll, and the Hunter
  • The Dragon and the Grandfather Clock
  • The Prince and the Pirates

About the Author:

Greg Wilson is a computer programmer and former teacher who lives in Toronto.

William Lytle has been teaching architectural design for several years as well as illustrating books for children. He lives in Toronto.

Review:

Highly pleasing tall tales from Wilson ... Lytle's illustrations, drawn in a fine line and washed in watercolor, are ideal scene-setters, and occasionally scene-stealers. Listeners -- for the tales must be read aloud -- will know from the outset that the sisters are agents of good and they will prevail, but that knowledge never interferes with the slick, sidelong fun; it's a delight to watch the pure of heart win through a bold use of quick wits. -- Kirkus Reviews, Nov 15, 1999
