INFO: Byrd, Robert. Paul Bunyan. M. 1998.
DESC: This charming rendition of the (invented? who knew!) folk-tale of Paul Bunyan is a must for capturing difficult-to-impress readers. The outlandishness of Paul’s feats make this book a fresh take on a familiar tale – and the suspense of turning the page to see what gigantic, huge things Paul will take on next help scaffold readers. Paul Bunyan has surprisingly little text-per-page for a level M book – it reads more like a K or an L, making it a good transition piece for readers ready to take on more complicated vocabulary and non-repetitive, unique plotlines and themes.
