Review: This is a Kansas tall tale with a Kansas author and illustrator. Five minutes old and Johnny was already 6 feet two. Johnny‚Äôs parents started west to find a farm big enough for Johnny. When they crossed the Missouri River, they knew they had found a place. The illustrations are full of Kansas symbols including the Jayhawk and the wildcat. Every Kansas school library will want to have a copy of this story. It will be in demand when you talk about the elements of a tall tale and when you study Kansas.
