Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Not as polished as the best of his tall tales, Kellogg's (Pecos Bill; Paul Bunyan) latest introduces a heroine generously endowed with strength, speed and spunk. At birth, Sally Ann greets her parents and nine brothers with a loud "Howdy!" and announces: "I can out-talk, out-grin, out-scream, out-swim, and out-run any baby in Kentucky!" And she certainly does, much to the astonishment of all. On her eighth birthday, the ever-smiling child leaves home to find new challenges on the frontier; eventually, she marries Davy Crockett. The story's pace slackens considerably as Sally Ann settles into unaccustomed tranquility on a farm, until she finally renews her claim to fame by besting a gang of alligators and creating The Great Alligator Tornado, which disperses the disruptive creatures from Minnesota to New Orleans. Though flawed by some jarring transitions and an overly abrupt ending, this is a merry tale, fittingly accompanied by Kellogg's buoyant colored ink, watercolor and acrylic art. Here he comically captures the boundless energy of his larger-than-life heroine. All ages.

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3?Kellogg retells a mighty fine tall tale of refreshing heroic feats, adding humorous details through his hallmark illustrations. While still a toddler, Sally Ann rollicks her way through numerous adventures, like outrunning rabbits and outswimming otters. At age four, she flips the strongest arm wrestlers. She screams the feathers right off the heads of a pair of eagles while rescuing Davy Crockett, who has his head caught in a tree. "'Well, star spangle my banner!'" cried Sally Ann. "'I've just invented bald eagles!'" As soon as Davy regains consciousness, he proposes, head over heels in love. However, marriage does not put an end to her amazing exploits, as she foils marauding alligators and the villainous Mike Fink to protect her child, Hardstone. In the manner of tall tales, this telling emphasizes different episodes with more humor than Caron Lee Cohen's version (Greenwillow, 1985). And, of course, Kellogg's colored-ink, watercolor and acrylic illustrations create a worthy addition to this larger-than-life genre.?Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE

Steven Kellogg is wonderful telling the story of Sally Ann from her birth, her running, and the bear battle, to meeting and marrying Davey Crockett. Very strong woman. This folklore tale has excellent color illustrations. I would highly recommend this one for reading to and by the K through the 8th grade, along with a recommendation for teachers and parents, also.

Format: Hardcover
This was a great book especially for young girls. It tells the story of a female hero and all her adventures. Even after marrying Davy Crockett, one of the most famous folk hero's, Sally Ann remains independent and the greatest hero in the book. I highly recomend it to anyone, especially those interested in folk tales.

I bought this for my daughter after having purchased all the other Steven Kellogg American folk tales. This book is as good as all the rest, amazing illustration and fun stories. This is particularly unique since it has a female heroine.

This book was linked to a book of the same title, but a different author/illustrator - Steven Kellogg. NOT the same and not what I wanted or thought I was buying. It's an ok book - in good shape and will work as a comparison, but I needed the Kellogg book for my lesson plans. Given the price I paid for it, I won't complain too much, but I do feel a bit deceived - kinda "bait and switch".
