"Lester has retold 48 of the folktales in standard English but with a strong feel for the dialect of the original stories . . . as lively as the originals but they also have a liveliness of their own, as he incorporates modern allusions which never seem out of place".--School Library Journal. Coretta Scott King Award Book.
