As a professional storyteller, Jim May has told stories to well over a million schoolchildren and nearly as many adults. A favorite performer at the National Storytelling Festival, Jim May has received one of American storytelling’s highest honors, the National Storytelling Network’s Circle of Excellence award.
“I was drawn to this story because of its humor, it’s child-protagonist (a tough little girl toddler), its popularity in an earlier, simpler form among school groups I visited, and the idea of introducing mock-heroic eighth grade boys to heighten both the drama and the humor of my own version. Young audiences responded positively to my additions to the story, and with Shawn Finley’s vibrant, colorful illustrations, it became a success as a picture book.
I am grateful for Parkhurst Brothers’ new edition which my mail
indicates will be enjoyed by a new generation of picture book lovers.”
