About this title


Davy Crockett could run faster, jump higher, and dive deeper than any man in Tennessee. This all-American folktale is "just right for introducing primary-grade readers to an American legend."--The Reading Teacher. Full-color illustrations.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3-- Dewey briefly retells, in rollicking prose, several of Davy Crockett's outlandish exploits that were common currency even during his lifetime: climbing out of a hollow tree by biting a bear on the tail, riding a bolt of lightning, walking up Niagara Falls on an alligator. His (folkloric) wife, Sally Ann Thunder Ann, makes an appearance here, rescuing Davy from eagles picking his hair out. Dewey's bright watercolor cartoons are complete with snakes in rainbow colors and a live raccoon who plays the role of Davy's hat. Pictures on each page are accompanied by five or ten lines of text framed neatly with square borders. What a fitting figure to be remembered as a folk hero, and what a merry picture-book tribute to him. Expect neither history nor biography--just enjoy a witty invitation to tall-tale fun. --Ruth Semrau, Lovejoy School, Allen, TX

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
