Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With spare grace and lively wit, acclaimed author Howard Norman chronicles the hilarious antics of a provocative troublemaker. Whether cheating in a sleepwalking contest, teaching the shut-eye dance to ducks, or halting a wedding by transforming the groom into a kingfisher, Trickster sets the world askew. Like trickster figures the world round, this Algonquian mischief-maker prods our imagination and makes us laugh deep in our hearts. In forty-two luminescent, richly detailed paintings, Tom Pohrt follows Tricksterand#8217;s trailand#8212;across frozen lakes and thawing marshesand#8212;on a journey that carries us from trouble, to laughter, and, finally, to wisdom.
