Jackrabbit McCabe & the Electric Telegraph

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Leo Espinosa. The people of Windy Flats count on Jackrabbit McCabe and his extra-long legs to deliver messages fast. Will the advent of the electric telegraph make Jackrabbit's gift obsolete? Only a man-versus-machine race will yield the answer. Espinosa's illustrations find the humor in this old-timey yarn, which is both informative and sensitive to the idea that progress can have human costs.
