Gr 2-4-As she did in Meet Tricky Coyote and That Tricky Coyote (both Walker, 1993), Mayo continues to explore the trickster legends in Native American stories. These books, containing five tales each, are written in short sentences with simple word choices that should make them accessible to newly independent readers. Children will enjoy the explanations of how Rabbit got his short tail and harelip, as well as his adventures outwitting Fox and other foes much as his cousin Brer Rabbit does in African American folklore. Sources for the tales are documented. As in the ``Coyote'' books, there is an analysis of the character within Native American tradition, plus a bibliography of early collections. Source-note tidbits at the end of each story are more in balance with the text length and more likely to pique the interest of the intended audience. Mayo again uses flat acrylics, bright and lively, in both full-page and decorative illustrations. Respectful introductions to folklore for younger readers.-Sally Margolis, Deerfield Public Library, IL
