Publisher's Summary

Do you know what a tall tale is? Well if you don't, you better catch these clever stories. Some of these tales are even taller than Joe Hayes! Did you ever hear of a dog that knows how to play checkers? (He’s really not that smart: he loses more times than he wins.)

Silly tall tales

Tall, very tall, tales that kids and old men will enjoy. Fishing, hunting and dog nonsense stories to laugh and/or roll your eyes at.
