Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hare solves his familys problems by tricking rich and lazy Bear in this funny, energetic version of an old slave story. With roots in American slave tales, Tops & Bottoms celebrates the trickster tradition of using ones wits to overcome hardship. “As usual, Stevens animal characters, bold and colorful, are delightful. . . . Its all wonderful fun, and the book opens, fittingly, from top to bottom instead of from side to side, making it perfect for story-time sharing.”--Booklist

This title has been selected as a Common Core Text Exemplar (Grades 2-3, Stories)

Synopsis:

With roots in European folktales and American slave stories, this tale celebrates the trickster tradition of overcoming hardship by using one's wits. An exciting vertical format takes this funny story to its most entertaining extreme.
