With stories that vary in emotional tone, matching the ever-shifting appearance and character of the trickster himself and the lessons he teaches and learns, this collection is an ideal choice for dipping into over and over. A dandy read for those interested in history, folklore, adventure, humor, or the arts, and a unique contribution to the form.Booklist (starred review)
The trickster is a being that loves to create chaos. In Native American traditions, it takes many forms and appears in many stories. Now it's taking the form of a graphic novel. More at NPR.org
