"Way up in Michisota, "
"Annie's famous far and wide, "
"Because she roped an avalanche"
"and took it for a ride."
Told with read-aloud gusto by master rhymesmith Lisa Wheeler and illustrated--with tongue firmly in cheek--by Kurt Cyrus, "Avalanche Annie" is the wildest, woolliest, most awe-inspiring, and "goofiest" tall tale since Paul Bunyan hitched up Babe the Blue Ox.
