No hi ha cap discussió a Converses sobre aquesta obra.
‘The Tale of Willie Monroe’ is a juvenile children’s picture book, which is of the tall tale genre. It is about a young man named Willie Monroe who meets a wispy girl named Delilah and her ninety-nine year old grandmother who can out muscle him with their physical prowess. Delilah’s grandmother can even carry a horse single-handedly on her shoulders! Willie stays with Delilah and her grandmother for a short time to ‘toughen up’ and to develop his strength, training to eventually enter a contest of strength in Carolina. Written in the vernacular of the South, this story is an excellent example of a tall tale. The humorous illustrations are colorful and charming, and the story, while seeming quite contrived, is nevertheless, endearing and pleasant. ( )
This is a wonderful story that takes place in the south and sets up the story for a wonderful country feel. The story is a great tall tale of strong men and women, who train to be people of strength and compassion. It displays the fact one must work hard for what they want.
An adaptation, set in the American South, of an old Japanese folktale in which a powerful wrestler who hopes to win the Emperor's Wrestling Match encounters three exceptionally strong women who train him for success.
