Description
 
Howard Norman (a.); Tom Pohrt (illus.). With spare grace & lively wit, acclaimed author Howard Norman offers readers seven Algonquian stories of the outrageous antics of the singular maverick called Trickster. When Trickster sets out walking, mischief is never far behind. Whether he is cheating in a sleepwalking contest, teaching the shut-eye dance to ducks, or halting a wedding by transforming the groom into a kingfisher bird, Trickster sets the world askew. Tom Pohrtís richly detailed paintings invite us to follow where Trickster leads -- across frozen lakes & thawing marshes, into ash storms & lightning-singed tree stumps, on a journey that carries us from trouble, to laughter, & finally, to wisdom. Covers Cree & Ojibwa Indians. Story notes. Juvenile audiences.
