Barry Moser is the prizewinning illustrator and designer of more than three hundred books for children and adults. He is widely celebrated for his dramatic wood engravings for the only twentieth-century edition of the entire King James Bible illustrated by a single artist. He lives in western Massachusetts.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-6-Move over Raven, Coyote, and Anansi. Here's a new trickster with dancing feet and sharp wits. As Banks explains in the introduction, this hare must not be confused with a rabbit. He stops vampires and hiccups with a flip of his tail, and he doesn't merely hop. In one story, he jumps so high that he reaches the moon, and his dancing is so jolly that it turns a nasty queen into a pleasant one. This collection of 10 tales is varied in setting, character, and content. Hare helps an agoraphobic young woman overcome her fears, chases a dragon, and gives the demure harebell its name. Perhaps the most unusual and thought-provoking selection is about a witch who's working on closing the hole in the ozone layer. "The Hare and the Vampire" just begs to be told aloud, as does "The Hare with the Diamond Tail." Bank's pithy style creates episodes that are brief, but well developed and full of deadpan humor. She explores some sophisticated themes- prejudice, self-esteem, environmentalism-but the stories are never didactic. Moser's trademark watercolor portraits capture both the wildness and intelligence in Hare's eyes. The spoiled queen looks as nasty as Mary Lennox before she finds her secret garden, the giants Dismal and Horrible most definitely are that, the vampire looks horrendous, and the witch is a woman not to be messed with. A delightful modern collection with a feel of the classics.
