Review: Levi Strauss Gets a Bright Idea: A Fairly Fabricated Story of a Pair of Pants

Levi Strauss Gets a Bright Idea: A Fairly Fabricated Story of a Pair of Pants
Levi Strauss Gets a Bright Idea: A Fairly Fabricated Story of a Pair of Pants by Tony Johnston
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

The artwork and story are cute but, really — what is the point of a totally made-up story of the origin of Levi’s dungarees? The last page has the true story in tiny print that no kid will ever read and, it basically says that everything in the main body of the text is false. I just don’t see that this adds anything to the corpus of kids’ literature or history. Meh.
