Pecos Bill: A Tall Tale
Last updated Tuesday, January 8, Date s Used: Jan. Synopsis: School Library Journal Review The anecdotes associated with Texas' fabled cowboy hero burst from the pages in rapid succession, Kellogg's robust illustrations enlarging and enriching the choppy, energetic text that is seasoned with Texan expressions. In dramatizing Pecos Bill's life story, Kellogg also conveys a sense of place, of the rugged, expansive physical beauty of the American West in pioneer days. Yellow-oranges and blues dominate the scenes, in tones that range from dust-pale to midnight blue.
Today we tell a traditional American story called a "tall tale. The descriptions in the story are exaggerated — much greater than in real life. Long ago, the people who settled in undeveloped areas in America first told tall tales. After a hard day's work, people gathered to tell each other funny stories. Pecos Bill was a larger than life hero of the American West. No one knows who first told stories about Pecos Bill. Cowboys may have invented the stories.
This book describes incidents from the life of Pecos Bill, from his childhood among the coyotes to Pecos Bill. A Tall Tale. By Steven Kellogg, Steven Kellogg.
