SLAPPY HOOPER

An amusing story of a sign painter whose art was so realistic it kept him in constant difficulties. Birds ate the bread from his billboards, houses caught fire from the stoves he painted -- and yet he persevered in the practice of his art. An ungrateful public, a bitter experience in Wyoming, are nothing to Slappy Hooper who suffers for his realistic art as acutely, (and, more dramatically) as any proverbial radical. A different type of story, with a Bunyan-Munchausen character, that children in this age group will enjoy, and which 3rd through 5th grade readers will make their own.
