About This Book
Who could lop the funnel off a tornado with one mighty whack? Who used Paul Bunyan’s nose to dig the Mississippi and gave him his big blue ox? Who flattened out Kansas and piled up the Rocky Mountains? Who was the Pioneer Spirit of Kansas? — Johnny Kaw, that’s who! This rollicking tall tale features a thirty-foot-tall giant who shapes the land and trails of Kansas. This reissue of the 1997 coloring book edition illustrated with black and white line drawings has updated resource material about the creators of Johnny Kaw and all the themes in the book. It is an excellent resource for units on the state of Kansas and units on tall tales.
