Tall: Great American Folktales Edited by Donnie Lemke
Lemke, D. (2012). Tall: Great American Folktales. North Mankato, MN: Capstone.
Tall: Great American Folktales is a wonderful retelling of the tall tales of Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, John Henry, and Johnny Appleseed in graphic novel format. It is sure to be a hit, as well as fit a requirement in the TEKs, here in Texas. The illustrations are superb and the stories true to the old tales. Tall recreates the tales in a ways that the reader will remember them for years. This is a definite purchase for my early elementary library.
