Overview

The third title in the new chapter-book series with classic storytelling at its heart. Parents and teachers will love its read-aloud appeal. Kids will love the adventure.

Mr. Taylor is the new teacher in Molly's class, and he has a special knack for spinning a yarn. He can build an intriguing plot around any five items that his students choose. A star, a magic kettle, golden scissors, a heads-up penny, and a pinto pony. That's all it takes for Mr. Taylor to create an amazing adventure.

Molly chooses five items that she thinks will guarantee her story is a fairy tale. But Mr. Taylor has something much more wild in mind: a classic tale of the old West and a girl who wants to prove she can hold her own with the best of the cowboys.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennie DeGenaro
Ellen Miles writes two complete stories in one book. Students believe the greatest thing about their teacher Mr. Taylor is his ability to tell exciting tales. A student provides him with five unrelated items and he weaves the items into a story. When Mr. Taylor calls on painfully shy Molly, she almost does not provide the items. Mr. Taylor tells an exciting story about the danger a girl named Jessie encounters when her mother allows her to go on a roundup and Jessie pretends to be a boy. Danger is involved when Jessie, known as "James" by the roundup cowboys, bravely thwarts rustlers in their attempts to steal cattle. Molly, so shy that she is known by all as "the shy girl," surprises the school when she wins the Hoop Shoot. After this great success, she no longer looks down when people speak to her. Instead, she looks them in the eye. As the book features a cowgirl, cowboys, rustlers, and a shy girl who wins a Hoop Shoot, it should appeal to most boys and girls. "Taylor-Made Tales."
