"Teague's vibrant, cheekily heroic paintings and Isaacs's fluid, folksy storytelling offer a twist to The Story of Little Black Sambo. . . Whether or not children have encountered the original tale, they'll quickly become immersed in these evocative landscapes, and deem Toby a brave heroine."

"Quick-thinking frontier gal outsmarts a passel of mean critters in a tale with echoes of a boy, tigers, and pancakes. . . Teagues' vibrant oil paintings add humor and style to Isaacs's All-American tall tale. Totally delightful and a great new spin on an old story."
