About this title
Joyful, humorous, and zany, these classic stories are unique Americana. Rootabaga Stories, Part One includes all the material originally published as Rootabaga Stories in 1922. A second volume, to be published in Spring 1989, will include all the stories published as Rootabaga Pigeons in 1923.Review:
Collection of children's stories by Carl Sandburg, published in 1922. These fanciful tales reflect Sandburg's interest in folk ballads and nonsense verse. He modeled his expansive fictional land on the American Midwest. The lighthearted stories, referred to as moral tales by Sandburg, feature such silly characters as Hot Dog the Tiger, Gimme the Ax, White Horse Girl, Blue Wind Boy, and Jason Squiff the Cistern Cleaner. Succeeding books in the same vein include Rootabaga Pigeons (1923), Rootabaga Country (1929), and Potato Face (1930). -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
