Swamp Angel

Written by Anne Issacs
Illustrated by Paul O. Zelinsky

  • 1995 Boston Globe - Horn Book Award Honor Book (Picture Book)
  • 1995 Caldecott Medal Honor Book

Swamp Angel can lasso a tornado, and drink an entire lake dry. She single-handedly defeats the fearsome bear known as Thundering Tarnation, wrestling him from the top of the Great Smoky Mountains to the bottom of a deep lake. Caldecott Medal-winning artist Paul O. Zelinsky's stunning folk-art paintings are the perfect match for the irony, exaggeration, and sheer good humor of this original tall tale set on the American frontier.
