LEVI STRAUSS GETS A BRIGHT IDEA: A FAIRLY FABRICATED STORY OF A PAIR OF PANTS
Tony Johnston, ill. by Stacy Innerst (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Sept. 2011)(ages 5-8). The story of Levi Strauss and the creation of blue jeans gets a tall tale treatment in this hilarious picture book. The text is funny and full of whimsy, while the illustrations are bright and equally amusing. (An author's note tells the true story...).
