From Publishers Weekly:

"The younger child will be fascinated to learn why dogs chase cats, why the little man wants to be big," commented PW, further noting that Lester skillfully retells these tales from black folklore. Expert, full-color pictures by Pinto illustrate the stories, most of which date back to slave times and epitomize relationships between master and slave.
