Perhaps one of the most notorious creatures from the fairy realm is the ever-changing trickster fairy: the Pooka. A shapeshifter, the pooka can take many forms, including invisibility, although it most often appears as a terrible horse with eyes of fire and flaming breath. It can also appear as a goat, goblin, dog, or even a rabbit. Not inherently evil, their main task is taunting: they'll take you on a joyride of terrifying proportions, shake you out of your current frame of mind, knock you out of your stupor with a swift kick.

Presents nine folktales from around the world involving tricksters, including "Jack and the Wizard," "The Frail Old Woman," "Turtle Goes on the Warpath," and "Nail Soup"

I bought this book to help us with a Waldorf-inspired second grade block for my daughter. It has so many good reviews, I was sure I would like it. Unfortunately, I did not. I grew up hearing Anansi stories, and other trickster tales, and these were not my favorite ones, and the modern writing style is not for me. It's the dialogue in modern writing that always seems so stilted, and it bothers me to read it aloud to my kids. Anyway, I just had way too high of expectations for it. A book with better trickster folk tales that I discovered is called The Cow-tail Switch. The style of writing is great and the stories are funny, authentic, and interesting.

These are wonderful stories. Claudio Munoz is one of our favorite illustrators and Richard Walker is one of our favorite story tellers. With these 2 collaborating, how can you go wrong? My kids, ages 3 and 5 are transfixed by these stories.

My one complaint is we never received the CD with this book.

love it!

Delightfully light tales mixed with whimsical watercolor illustrations is the recipe for an all-around fun book. Some of the tales are well-known, and others are new, but each of them is entertaining and suitably written for reading out loud or to oneself. This is a book I'd keep on hand for a quick pick-me-up since the antics of each clever hero are sure to make you smile.
My one complaint is that some of the stories took on too much of a modern colloquial air, which detracted from their folk-tale feel (but this is a minor detail since it never interferes with the overall point of the story).
Read this book... it's a lot of fun!
