A fun tall tale!

My rating: 4.5 stars
Audiobook narrator J. Scott Bennett rating: 5 stars

This was a really fun short story about Davy Crockett as he transforms from Congressman back to frontiersman. While it is a tall tale, there is likely some truth to the history being that Crockett was a congressman and eventually left congress due to his disagreement of the Indian Removal Act.

I like how these folk heroes have become legendary and eventually have grown to larger-than-life type stories (tall tales). It makes for a good read and can teach some morals and lessons along the way.

This tale is the perfect length and I agree with the age limits of 6 to 106. I am going to see what my eight-year-old son thinks about it. Though, I feel like l may need to give him a little history on Davy Crockett first. I like how the end of the recording has an author’s note and mentions some Davy Crockett movies like King of the Wild Frontier. I wish my library or Amazon Prime would have some of these movies so I can show them to my son!

I really enjoyed the narration of this book. He did a great job of changing his voice for different characters, including the bear!

I hope this author write more Davy Crockett stories (or similar tall tales of past folk heroes)!

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Short but fun

I love tall tales, and this one was no exception. I liked the morals that were presented in the story and how Davey Crockett tries to fight for the rights of the Indians. Its just a fun book. I listened to the Audible audio version of this book narrated by J. Scott Bennett. I love Bennett as a narrator. He has a unique voice that was absolutely PERFECT for this book. If you enjoy tall tales, or reading about the times of Davey Crockett, I highly recommend this book.
