This book is about a women named Sally Ann that can do a days work in a short period of time. She also did most of them using only one hand. One morning she decided to go for a stroll in the woods. As she walked a panther names Fireeyes jumped in front of her looked into her eyes then knocked down a row of oak trees. She was not intimidated at all, so she grabbed Fireeyes by the tail and threw him into a thorn bush. They each wanted each others coats so they began to fight. They wrestle until th ...more
Miss Sally Ann has had many great adventures, but one of the tallest tales about her is the story of when she met Fireeyes. Fireeyes was a panther, huge and black. When the two of them saw each other in the deep forest, they both wanted each other’s fur. Miss Sally Ann thought that Fireeyes’ hide would keep her toes nice and warm. Fireeyes wanted the bear-fur coat that she was wearing to keep his shoulders warm. After gazing eye-to-eye, the two of them began to fight. It was an epic battle, and ...more
Miss Sally Ann and the Panther by Bobbi Miller

It’s a wonder to behold, a writer settled into her groove, matching the subject matter closest to her heart with prose that never fails to delight and enthrall. Bobbi Miller is laying down some mighty fine prose with the ease and skill of a master wordsmith, and we readers (listeners too!) are the joyful recipients of her storytelling skills.

Readers first met the “splendiferous” Miss Sally Ann (her full name is Miss Sally Ann Thunder Ann Whirlwind) i
Miss Sally Ann and the Panther is a fun book about two strong characters coming head to head, or fist to claw, as the case may be. Lots of entertaining language and action in this retold ‘Davy Crockett’ style tale. Vibrant pictures add to the hilarious story about finding friendship in a most unlikely way.

Miss Sally Ann and ole Fireeyes Panther engage in a ferocious battle in this tall tale. Trees are toppled over and a giant gorge dug out by Fireeyes mighty claws in this epic wrestling match. Finally, Miss Sally Ann and Fireeyes meet eye to eye,smile and become best friends. White birch timbers frame illustrations adding to the dramatics of the legend. Reviewer 17
This is a new tall tale, written in the spirit of Mike Fink and Paul Bunyan. Miss Sally and the panter square off, each wanting to steal the other's coat. After a brawl so fierce that it curdles the Milky Way, the two come to a new conclusion.
Less a tall tale than a long-winded fight. I found the illustrations to be flat, and many of the made-up words ("hugeceously" "terrifiacious") unpronouncable. Not my cup of tea.
Edward Sullivan
A lively, fanciful tall tale featuring Davy Crockett's sweetheart and a panther she tames. Somewhat reminiscent of Anne Isaacs's Swamp Angel.
A little long on the down-home made up country words, but great illustrations and a fun story.
The two fight to a draw and instantly become friends. That's kind of it.
Alyson (Kid Lit Frenzy)
Fun to have a tall tale featuring a woman. Not as many as readily know.
