Trickster is a graphic collection of Native American folktales featuring tricksters in one form or another. Each tale was written by a Native American storyteller and paired with illustrations by artists selected by the authors. And what a wonderful book it is!
The stories come from many different parts of the country and are told in different styles, some in a traditional narrative style, others using more modern language. The stories are as varied as the artistic styles. There are creation tales, such as the opening story, which features coyote and the story of how the stars came to be. And there are classic trickster stories, such as how rabbit tricked the alligator, who wouldn't let any of the animals near the river to drink. Clever rabbit makes sure that the alligator gets what's coming to him!
