Jackrabbit McCabe & the Electric Telegraph by Lucy Rozier - ESSENTIAL

Rozier, Lucy Jackrabbit McCabe & the Electric Telegraph, illustrated by Leo Espinosa.  PICTURE BOOK.  Schwartz & Wade, 2015.  $18.  

Jackrabbit McCabe has the longest legs in the county and he has used them almost since birth to get everywhere faster than anyone and pretty much anything else.  But is he faster than the new telegraph wires?  Maybe not.

Reminiscent of the Legend of John Henry.  I am actually surprised that I haven’t seen a book like this before.  This would be a great addition to any unit on tall tales and legends.  Even though it is modern, it would fit into any collection of such.
