Everyone knows that Texans do things in a big way, and this humorous retelling of a classic tale reinforces that notion. From the very first page, even the youngest readers will be engaged by the ridiculous antics of this very tall Texan as he tries to rid himself of the tiniest of problems. With its rhythmic word chains and litany of creatures, every page calls for read-along fun. From a flea to a cactus to a bull, every verse adds yet another layer of silliness.

With each nonsensical action, the tall Texan grows bigger and bigger until he reaches enormous proportions that result in a Texas-sized bellyache Each zany action is illustrated in hilarious detail to incite giggles. The repetitive nature of this story and its chorus of "Whoo-ee I can't believe he swallowed a flea " will resonate long after the story ends.
