PB – Rabbit’s Song
Trickster comes a-calling
To find a totem here—
In the time before time, Trickster searches among all the animals for a teacher of man. One by one, he examines and dismisses Bear, Cat, Tiger, Dog and Wolf as being too frightening. Trickster at last settles on the humble and unimposing Rabbit with his companions, Coyote, Raven and Crow as the very beasts to teach the Way of Laughter.
As the story unfolds, the reader is taken on a journey of warmth and humor full of visual delights and details reminiscent of the worldwide Trickster tales which sparked the story’s inspiration.
Trudy Herring’s imaginative story, S.J. Tucker’s lyrical ballad complemented by W. Lyon Martin’s lively illustration creates a book young and old readers will delight in for years to come.
“Rabbit’s Song is an imaginative children’s book written in the style of a folktale…Vivid color illustrations (of a bright green rabbit, a red coyote, and their brown and deep blue avian friends) help draw young readers into this adventurous, magical fable.” – Midwest Book Review
