Tricky Tricksters

They’re tricky and they’re selfish but then they get their comeuppance in the end, hooray!

There’s something universally appealing about these very wise human tales, which are found in all parts of the world from Ireland, to India, to Africa and the American South. You and your kids are sure to enjoy the antics in these recommended books for children ages 0-9.
