Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
AGERANGE: Ages 9 to 14.

??This book includes instructions for writing a tall tale. It begins with what writing supplies to gather then shows examples of tall tales. It then addresses good word choice and possible publication. The book ends by showing other tall tales and referring a future writer to the FactHound web site. As part of the "Write Your Own" series, the book contains many side bars, excerpts from current authors, and a time line at the bottom of the pages. This book provides examples from Paul Bunyan, John Henry, and Davy Crockett; it would make a nice introduction to some currently written tall tales. However, it is somewhat confusing about which age group might use this book best. The photographs of young writers suggest the book is for middle school or high school freshmen writers but many of the authors mentioned publish in a picture book format. This book could be used to encourage writing but some of the illustrations from picture books may discourage young adults seriously considering the book. Reviewer: Elizabeth Fronk
