      Paul Bunyan, a Tall Tail, by Steven Kellogg, is an example of traditional literature and it tells the story Paul Bunyan, the biggest baby ever born and how he helped level and prepare the land for people to travel west. This book could be classified under the subgenre of a tall tale because its main character, Paul Bunyan, and all of his accomplishments are exaggerated far out of reason, but this makes the story interesting. The book is also based on a "larger-than-life" character and story, whi [...]

      This book has been on my son's shelf for a long time, but somehow we had never read it. He requested it last night and, turns out, it's pretty good! The cover didn't impress me much, but the illustrations are great. Each one is super-detailed, with a lot of fun things for my five-year-old to look at and comment on. I also learned a ton of details of the Paul Bunyan tall-tale, most of which I didn't know prior to reading this. After finishing it, my son wanted to keep it in bed with him so he cou [...]

      I wasn't a fan of this version of Paul Bunyan. The illustrations were neat, until the story became unbelievable or too modern, for my liking. I liked the traditional stories about Paul Bunyan and Babe, not the parts in this book where it states that Bunyan built tall bunkhouses where the workers had to parachute to breakfast, or where the griddle was so large men wore bacon on their feet to grease it. Maybe it's coupled with the childish illustrations, but this story wasn't for me.

      Paul Bunyan is a giant man who is know for his journey across the United States. He encounters enemies, makes huge flapjacks, and even forms the Grand Canyon.This book is a wonderful retelling of a classic legend. I like this book a lot. It tells a widely told legend in a fresh way with great illustrations to accompany it. I would likely use this as a fun story before a unit on legends or even about the US.

    15. Emily Alig on said:

      This is a classic Tall Tale that has been told for generations. This tall tale amazes children by the vast extreme of this character who was so large and mighty!" This man who could chop down forty acres of trees with one swing and who built the grand canyon when he walked with his axe dragging behind him." This fun story of how Paul found his ox, babe, who was just as large!
