Synopses & Reviews
Bounding with oversize visual and verbal humor, here is the previously untold story of Paul Bunyans “little” sister, who was as tall as a pine tree, as strong as a dozen moose, and could run so fast that she once ran all the way back to yesterday. As she heads to the North Woods in search of freedom and adventure, Paula uses her brains and brawn to surmount every challenge that comes her way, proving to ferocious animals that shes their friend and becoming protector of a wild wonderland.
Antic-filled artwork by Kevin OMalley accompanies Phyllis Roots text, a great read-aloud with a welcome eco-friendly twist at the end.
