Note: 
Paul Bunyan gets some competition in a story that introduces Big Sam, a towering Jewish man who digs the Grand Canyon to create a mixing bowl to make challah for Rosh Hashanah. In a neat merging of the concept of tikkun olam and an environmental message, Big Sam repairs some of the havoc his actions have caused after a pair of bald eagles bring it to his attention. Closing cameos from Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, John Henry, and other legendary figures (someone has to eat all that challah). --Publishers Weekly A 2017 Sydney Taylor Notable for Younger Readers.
