From the Publisher :

A Ring of Tricksters features some of the most entertaining and enduring characters in literature. A fiddling alligator is outsmarted by a wily rabbit; a clever deerlet wins a wrestling match with an elephant; a crafty turtle outwits a leopard and rides him like a horse. Newbery medalist Virginia Hamilton adds her own eloquent storytelling magic as she retraces the fascinating migration of stories, characters, and voices back to their beginnings. Gracefully complementing Hamilton's accessible style, National Book Award-winner Barry Moser infuses each tale with sly humor and high spirits, creating unforgettable animals alive with human emotion.

Passed from generation to generation along the story ring of the slave trade, the tales in A Ring of Tricksters are a testament to the strength, creativity, and indomitable spirit of those who created and shared them. Engaging, intriguing, comic, and tender, A Ring of Tricksters introduces readers to an important body of folklore as it celebrates the wondrous range of imagination.
