Sure as Sunrise: Stories of Bruh Rabbit and His Walkin’ Talkin’ Friends


  • The combination of trickster fun, historical truth, and personal storytelling tradition makes this a winner.
  • Tate captures the personality of each of the characters, as well as the humor inherent in these stories. Varying perspectives keep the action moving. This excellent collection makes a great choice for reading aloud and will appeal to a wide audience.
