In this “Upper Peninsula Conte,” a young heroine outsmarts a giant, conning him out of his fortune, in a quintessential brains vs. brawn tale. The author’s note on the opening pages offers an introduction into the history and traditions relating to the story, noting her choice to make the protagonist a “clever, persistent girl,” rather than a more traditional young male figure. The illustrations, which are a combination of painting and collage, are absolutely beautiful. The photographs and paint intermix seamlessly, creating these wonderful earthy images. Great book for a read-aloud.
