The Gum-Chewing Rattler

By (author) Joe Hayes, Other Antonio Castro L.

<p><br>Respected raconteur Joe Hayes is built for tall tales—he’s got the world’s longest legs! And Joe—who travels all over the United States telling stories to kids—says that <I>The Gum-Chewing Rattler</I> is the perfect tall tale for kids because it combines so many familiar experiences—chewing lots of bubblegum, getting in trouble in school, driving your mom crazy—with the wild, impossible claim that a certain rattlesnake chewed gum and blew a bubble with it. Couple that with kids’ natural fascination with poisonous snakes, and <I>The Gum-Chewing Rattler</I> turns out to be one of Joe’s most requested stories.</p><p><br>Joe’s been telling this wild story for years, since before 1980, when he took those long legs of his out on the road. But now, that old gum-chewer is here for the first time in a picture book with full-color illustrations by Antonio Castro L.</p><p><br>Here’s how Joe’s story goes: When Joe was a boy, he chewed lots of bubblegum, his mom got so mad because the gum in his shirt pocket made a terrible mess in the wash! But this wad of bubblegum just happened to save Joe from a rattlesnake’s fangs!</p><p><br>Really!!</p><p><br>Don’t worry—his mother didn’t believe the story either.</p>
