KIRKUS REVIEW

Here is American folk legend in the making, in a tall tale that children will adore and adults find delightful nonsense. The story of what happens when great-grandfather went hunting for wild fowl on the banks of the Wabash. His ingenious ways of getting things done more easily and faster than others has a Paul Bunyan flavor, enhanced by great grandfather's own enchanting personality. His collar button pope off and stuns a partridge; he chops a tree down and fells a deer; one lucky accident provokes another, and great grandmother tidily finds a way to use everything he brings home. Good Americana and good fun.
