Reviews about Wiley and the Hairy Man: Adapted from an American Folk Tale (Ready-to-Read) (6):
Hulore
it was exactly the version I read to my children when they were little complete w/the accent. My 8 yr old granddaughter was delighted. It is also the same story my mammaw told me as a child
Nilarius
The school I work at had someone come in and tell the story to our children. This story is great and the kids get a kick out of the interaction between the boy and the Hairy Man.
Whitehammer
Every week when my 5 year old son and I would go to the public library, he would take out this book. He would make me read it over and over. He is now 24, and I found this book with the same cover, so I bought it to give to him when he has a child to read to.

Book was discribed as written. It is a fun book to read at any age. Would recommend to anyone. Thanks!

The only reason I give this book 4 stars instead of 5 is because the quality of the illustration reproduction could be higher (the illustrations being excellent in themselves). If you have ever lived in the deep south, you may have experienced some feeling of magic in the air, some feeling of ancient strength or knowledge that is just beyond the bayou. Molly Bang has tapped into this with a powerful mythical story of survival within the mojo filled natural world. (similar in flavor to the Grey Lady and the Strawberry Snatcher). She has also told the tale of a very strong woman and child who overcome a force (the Hairy Man) who threatens them. We have two children, age 2.5 and 9 who both enjoy this story.
