Description
Hare solves his family's problems by tricking rich and lazy Bear in this funny, energetic version of an old slave story. With roots in American slave tales, Tops & Bottoms celebrates the trickster tradition of using one's wits to overcome hardship. "As usual, Stevens' animal characters, bold and colorful, are delightful. . . . It's all wonderful fun, and the book opens, fittingly, from top to bottom instead of from side to side, making it perfect for story-time sharing."-- Booklist

display_description Bear has lots of money and lots of land -- and he's lazy. Hare has nothing but a hungry family -- and he's smart. Hare is sure there's a way to share Bear's wealth, so he and Mrs. Hare cook up a plan. Then Hare hops on down the road to Bear's place and proposes that Bear donate land. Hare handles labor, and they split the crop in half. All Bear has to do is choose the half he wants -- tops or bottoms. Sleepy Bear takes tops but finds once the harvest is in that he's been tricked by clever Hare!
