Miss Sally Ann Thunder Ann Whirlwind was a woman of wonder. She could rope a hurricane, outspin a steam mill, and blow out the moonlight in a single breath. But one morning a mean-as-tarnation panther whose eyes glare fire notices her fine, sleek coat . . . at the same time that Miss Sally Ann notices his! Lickety-split, the two raise such a racket that the milky way curdles. Will either one back down, back up, or back out? Young readers will love this bouncing tall tale about Davy Crockett's fictional sweetheart, a rambunctious American heroine.
