"The rich, colorful language of tall tales with its exaggerations and hyberboles is perfect for story telling. . . . The events are an absolute hoot with the swirling, moving illustrations highlighting the inventiveness of the text."
-Scripps Treasure Coast Newspaper

"Jan Day . . . paints a colorful tall tale." -Okeechobee News

When a dangerous hurricane blows into Florida, tall-tale hero Kissimmee Pete is blown headfirst into his craziest adventure yet. As the dark clouds take over the sky and the gusts of wind send his herd of wild cattle clear across Lake Okeechobee, Pete must rally up his animal friends to save the local settlers from the deadly storm.

Written in Jan Day's unique lyrical style that is as much fun to say as it is to read, Kissimmee Pete and the Hurricane is a fantastic adventure for all readers as legendary cow hunter Pete struggles to contain the rising flood waters, lassos the roaring wind, and saves the day for everyone. The book also includes a fact sheet on Florida, the cow trade, and the lives of actual cracker cow hunters like Kissimmee Pete.
