Reviews

..".full-color illustrations are wonderfully detailed and witty...Readers will enjoy meeting this larger-than-life Texan who invented cattle roping, lassos, round-ups and rodeos. Like Kellogg's "Paul Bunyan before this, "Pecos Bill will earn him many new fans.""-- Publishers Weekly"Steven Kellogg's artistic qualities of playful inventiveness and exaggeration and his knack with language make him an ideal teller of tales. Kellogg has done a spledid job with "Pecos Bill, taking several episodes and enriching them with visual humor...excellent introduction to the tall tale for the picture-book crowd.""-- The Horn Book..".combines visual farce with verbal exaggeration to provide a graphic rendition of an American tall tale....Kellogg's portrayal of Pecos Bill as a perpetual boy will appeal to children. The retelling is a smooth adaptation for introducing young listeners...""-- Bulletin for the Center for Children's Books"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...Kellogg's style is ideally suited to this tall tale--antic, detailed, colorful, hyperbolic.""-- School Library Journal..".this is one of Kellogg's best, and that is very good indeed.""-- Booklist
