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 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.
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.

A lively, fanciful tall tale featuring Davy Crockett's sweetheart and a panther she tames. Somewhat reminiscent of Anne Isaacs's Swamp Angel.
