A wonderful collection of short stories that are highly entertaining-this is the first time that I've recognized the "trickster" as a recurring character in most of the classic favorites that readers enjoy. The prologue and introduction by the compiling authors provide an insightful outlook in the world of the trickster and the impact it has on many different cultures all over the world. Recommended!
