Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:

“Full of sly wit and Cajun Spice.” ―

Chosen as a title for use in the Core Curriculum category of folktales and adaptation for grade set 3.5, this series of trickster tales, stemming from African folklore, bears remarkable resemblance to the Deep South’s Brer Rabbit tradition. The Louisiana version of Brer Rabbit, Compere Lapin, is a mischief maker determined to get the best of Compere Bouki. In a trio of stories that praises brains over brawn, this rascally rabbit seems to come out ahead no matter what.
