The pompous will fall and the humble prevail in these stories born (mostly) of American Slavery. From the transcendent title story to the tale of the iconic “tar baby,” cleverness and magic have a way of triumphing over greed. Told in witty dialect and evocatively illustrated; subject matter might be heavy for the very young.
