Reviewed by Anne Boiling for Readers' Favorite

Glenn Wasson transports readers back in time to the days of the Gold Rush. He shares tales that could very well be true if a bit exaggerated. A large nugget was stolen and swallowed; however, it came out all right in the end. Wasson continues by sharing the stories of Black Bart a famous bandit. There are many tall tales in Tales Mark Twain Would Have Loved To Steal. Glenn Wasson shares a summary of the tale and adds his poetry and art work to compliment the story.

The second section of this has a variety of amusing stories. My favorites include tall tales that featured a rabbit and a very intelligent mouse. Wasson is not afraid to laugh at himself hence this line from a poem titled The Lonely Christmas Tree, “Poems are written by fools like me.”

Tales Mark Twain Would Have Loved to Steal is hilarious. Wasson has a grand sense of humor. His tall tales are sure to please the most discriminating reader. I commend Wasson for not using vulgarity. Too often authors think they are not funny unless they are vulgar. Well done Colonel Glenn Wasson aka Black Bart.
