Blake really enjoyed the silliness of some of these tall tales. For example, Paul Bunyan, Johnny Appleseed and many more.
The story of Johnny Appleseed I think was my favorite story in the book. The book was pretty good, but I think it was slow at some parts and could have been written in a manner to better catch a child’s interest which is actually what this book is geared for. Really enjoyed reading some tales out of this book.
