Grade 1-3 Although Gib Morgan was a real oilman, Dewey has combined some of the tall tales surrounding him with those attributed to imaginary characters such as Kemp Morgan and Paul Bunyan. This meshing of real life and illusion creates an irresistible tale that traverses the United States and then jumps to South America. Short sentences concentrated in brief mini-tales allow easy reading for primary age youngsters to enjoy at their own pace.
Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 10 years ago. ISBN 0688065678 - I've always been a great fan of the well-told tall tale and when it comes in the form of a childrens' book, it's hard to get it wrong. From The Christmas Blizzard to The Ghosts of Luckless Gulch to Gib Morgan, I've been a fan longer than I've been alive. In 1859, Gib Morgan was seventeen years old and watching lots of people from his town rush off into the oil fields to make their fortune.

A prolific author-artist takes on another of America's tall-tale heroes-the relatively unfamiliar oilman's answer to Paul Bunyan. From the discovery of oil in Titusville, P. in 1859, Gib Morgan is in on the action-smelling out oilfields, building rigs single-handedly, drilling in such unlikely places as Pike's Peak. He acquires a super-long horse, Torpedo, to transport him from one site to another. Some of the incidents are merely setups for one-liners; some are derivative (the huge griddle for the crew's pancakes; the giant mosquitoes lifting a tank).

Ariane Dewey is an author and illustrator of children's books who is noted for her use of bright, primary colors and simple, almost primitive lines. Her simple texts for both picture books and chapter books often tweak history or myth with a nudge of humor by spinning tall tales about farmers, explorers, oilmen, and pirates. The exploits of a legendary oilman are recounted in Gib Morgan, Oilman, another beginning chapter-book with plenty of illustrations "in colors as vivid as the tales being told," according to Cathy Woodward writing in School Library Journal. Dewey blended facts about this actual historical figure into fiction to create "an irresistible tale," according to Woodward.
