Wordless Picture Books and American Tall Tales

The Wordless Picture Books exhibit shows artwork from books that are exactly that… wordless!  Without words, the artist must rely on only their illustrations to tell the story.  The effect of this may make you speechless.

An American Tall Tale is one that features a story that features exaggeration and hyperbole.  Often times the story originated from a real person or event, but over time, has become larger and larger.
