Tall Tale (fiction), 831 words, Lexile 600L Level 3 Grades 2-3

Pecos Bill was raised by coyotes and grew up to be a tough cowboy. After inventing the cowboy life and cleaning up all the bad men and fierce storms in Texas, Bill decided that he needed to move somewhere where there was more action. Along the way he won a fight with an unbelievably large rattlesnake, which he decided to use as a bullwhip, and tamed an unbelievably large wildcat. He found a tough bunch of men and built two ranches-New Mexico and Arizona.
