Book Review
Trickster is a compilation of Native American myths, folktales, and fables centered on the figure of the trickster.  The editor solicited the stories from Native American storytellers, who chose the artists and approved the panels for each tale.  The stories come from native peoples all across North America and can be enjoyed by people of all ages, while giving a voice to storytellers who aren't often represented enough in media such as this. A few standout stories include "Coyote and the Pebbles", "Azban and the Crayfish", and "Puapualenalena, Wizard Dog of Waipi'o Valley".
