Editorial Reviews

Parent's Choice
...Kellogg dedicates his own substantial talent to enhancing Paul's already sizable reputation. He amply succeeds.
Children's Literature
This tall tale was first retold and illustrated by Steven Kellogg in 1984 and is now being reissued in paperback. Just as the story of the huge man and his huge blue ox lives on, so do Kellogg's illustrations. Paul Bunyan and Babe are both wide-eyed and innocent, but Paul is always using his amazing powers to solve problems and help folks. In this particular version, he uses his ax to carve the Grand Canyon and fed flapjacks and syrup to the men who leveled the Great Plains and shaved the slopes of the Rocky Mountains. The pages are crowded with fun and humor—Paul holding a watermelon as if it were an orange, a line at the outhouse (the gentlemen's outhouse!), a library in a pioneer town, and wonderfully expressive faces for pioneers and ogres alike. Kellogg's retelling provides a marvelous way to share tall tales with short people and encourage youngsters to create their own legendary characters. 2004 (orig. 1984), HarperTrophy, Ages 4 to 8.
—Karen Leggett
