Davy Crockett Saves the World

By Rosalyn Schanzer; Rosalyn Schanzer (Illustrator)

HarperCollins, Hardcover, 9780688169916, 32pp.

Publication Date: August 1, 2001

What will happen when the great Davy Crockett comes head to head with Halley's Comet?

It's the
ball of fire ire
that EVER lit
up the heavens

(And why does Davy Crockett
wear a coonskin cap anyway?)

Rosalyn Schanzer peppers her telling with flavorful exaggerations, flamboyantly regaling readers with a larger-than-life drama played out in pictures bursting with color, humor, action, and detail.Listen to Daniel Pinkwater read, DAVY CROCKETT on Weekend Edition
