This collection of Tall Tales produced by Rabbit Ears was quite entertaining. Mixed bag though on the stories.

Johnny Appleseed:
Wow, it's news to me that ole Johnny was promised "three angel-brides in Heaven" for remaining "pure" while on earth. This bit of Americana disturbs me. The story itself meandered in Garrison Keiller's gently mournful tones, and I must say I used to like Mr Appleseed more when I knew less of his story.

Paul Bunyan:
So fun! And no awkward revelations!

Davy Crockett:

I remember both stories fondly from childhood & immensely enjoyed revisiting them as an adult. Bonus added that the audiobook has Garrison Keillor and Angelica Huston reading the stories. Great nostalgic factor and just good stories! I'll be introducing them to my kids!

Recommends it for: 3rd-5th
Johnny Appleseed is read by Garrison Keillor whose voice fit the mood of the story. Rip Van Winkle is read by Angelica Huston and it was enjoyable to listen to her tell the story.
Both stories had music at the beginning and the end of the stories which aided the tone of the stories.

Note: The edition that I listened to has Johnny Appleseed and Rip Van Winkle.

Paul Bunyan was my very favorite because there was a joke "let there beards grow down to their feet so they can knit socks."
