From Publishers Weekly
One of the tall tales in the series that began with Paul Bunyan, this merry book features Fink, grizzly-bear wrestler and King of the Mississippi River Keelboatmen. "Kellogg's antic style is as engaging as ever," said PW. All ages.

Kindergarten-Grade 4-- Kellogg retells some of the many legends about the rough and tumble keelboatman's younger days. He captures the energy and largeness of this tall-tale hero through the use of vernacular speech and in illustrations that can never quite contain the action within their borders. This version steers away from the negative stereotyping of women and American Indians that crop up in older tellings. Another hit in a series that does a wonderful job of introducing young children to America's folklore heroes.- Karen K. Radtke, Milwaukee Public Library
