On the day she is born this amazing baby proudly announces she can out-talk, out-grin, out-scream, out-swim, and out-run any baby in Kentucky. Within a few years Sally is off the frontier, where she stuns a hungry grizzly bear, makes a lasso out of six rattlesnakes, and is more than a match for the mighty Mike Fink. And when Sally Ann rescues Davy Crockett from a pair of ferocious eagles, even her hornet''s-nest bonnet and skunk perfume don''t stop him from proposing marriage.

From the Publisher

On the day she is born this amazing baby proudly announces she can out-talk, out-grin, out-scream, out-swim, and out-run any baby in Kentucky. Within a few years Sally is off the frontier, where she stuns a hungry grizzly bear, makes a lasso out of six rattlesnakes, and is more than a match for the mighty Mike Fink.

About the Author

Steven Kellogg is the illustrator of over eighty picture books for children, including his own retellings of Johnny Appleseed, Paul Bunyan, which School Library Journal declared "one of Kellogg’s best books," and Pecos Bill, which Booklist called "a read-aloud treat for the family or classroom." Mr. Kellogg is also the author of Chicken Little, which Booklist said was "one of Kellogg’s best efforts to date...a winner every child will like," and Aster Aardvark’s Alphabet Adventures, which Kirkus said was "an ingenious alliterative tour-de-farce, perfect accompaniment to the author’s zany illustrations. Just try keeping a straight face as you read this aloud."

Steven Kellogg lives in Sandy Hook, Connecticut.

From Our Editors

We all know the tall-tales of Davy Crockett, but how many know about his wife, Sally Ann? Almanacs published between 1834 and 1856 are the basis of the adventures of Crockett. Sally Ann Thunder Ann Whirlwind played a role in eight of the adventures and Sally Ann Thunder Ann Whirlwind Crockett, by Steven Kellogg, chronicles her life.

Editorial Reviews

"Kellogg''s uproarious picture book...draws on the legendary exploits of Davy Crockett''s wife. From the moment she''s born she''s amazing....She grows tall and strong, marries Davy Crockett, and protects her family from a gang of hooligan alligators...The storytelling is wonderfully laid-back, combining the grotesque and the domestic with droll exaggeration. The pictures swing from wild comic chaos to an occasional sweeping view of the universe."--Booklist.

"A rollicking retelling. The exuberant artwork depicts Sally Ann''s adventures with joyful humor and great energy." --The Horn Book

Appropriate for ages: 4 - 8
