Brief review by GoodReads.com

Tiny Librarian from GoodReads.com says: "Great collection of 21 Native American tales. All of the tales are told by Native American storytellers who chose the artists that they would work with to illustrate the stories in this collection. Definitely a more modern way to showcase these stories, instead of just sending kids/teens to the 398s in the library!"

Promo text for 'Trickster'

Here's the Fulcrum promo text for Trickster:

All cultures have tales of the trickster-a crafty creature or being who uses cunning to get food, steal precious possessions, or simply cause mischief. He disrupts the order of things, often humiliating others and sometimes himself. In Native American traditions, the trickster takes many forms, from coyote or rabbit to raccoon or raven. The first graphic anthology of Native American trickster tales, Trickster brings together Native American folklore and the world of comics.

n Trickster, more than twenty Native American tales are cleverly adapted into comic form. Each story is written by a different Native American storyteller who worked closely with a selected illustrator, a combination that gives each tale a unique and powerful voice and look. Ranging from serious and dramatic to funny and sometimes downright fiendish, these tales bring tricksters back into popular culture in a very vivid form. From an ego-driven social misstep in "Coyote and the Pebbles" to the hijinks of "How Wildcat Caught a Turkey" and the hilarity of "Rabbit's Choctaw Tail Tale," Trickster provides entertainment for readers of all ages and backgrounds.

Here's a little plug for the book on My3Books.com.

Trickster will hit the book shelves in June, but you can get your copy ahead of time at the Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo in Columbus, Ohio, and Festival Image in Washington,D.C./Baltimore, both in April.
