KIRKUS REVIEW

 Like Mayo's two collections of Native American tales about Coyote (both 1993), these five trickster stories and those in a companion volume (Big Trouble for Tricky Rabbit!, ISBN: 0-8027- 8275-2) are retold in simple, serviceable prose and accompanied by stylized illustrations composed of flat areas of attractive colors ranging from soft blue-greens and grays to more dramatic accents. Readers just moving into chapter books will find the open format, short sentences, large print, and art on every spread particularly inviting. Brief comments on tribes that told (and tell) the stories; longer afterword (``Who Is Rabbit?'') by Jay Miller, PhD; fine list of sources. (Folklore/Young reader. 6- 10)
