AFRICAN-AMERICAN FOLKTALES FOR YOUNG READERS by Richard Alan Young
FAIRY TALES, FOLKTALES AND MYTHS
Released: May 1, 1993

"Not a necessary purchase, but possibly useful to supplement books like Hamilton's The People Could Fly (1985) and the Youngs' own Favorite Scary Stories of American Children (1990). (Folklore. 11+)"
Thirty-four tales (plus two poems) of tricksters and heroes- -fables, wonderfully scary stories (in a section called ``In the Park and In the Dark''), tall tales, and a pair of contemporary Br'er Rabbit stories, all retold in a respectful, unaffected style. Read full book review >
