Preview: Hear it

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 storytime sharing.BooklistThis title has been selected as a Common Core Text Exemplar (Grades 23, Stories)
