Zomo the Rabbit: A Trickster Tale from West Africa

by Gerald McDermott - £5.99  Houghton Mifflin (1996)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780152010102 | ISBN 10: 0152010106

Zomo the rabbit, a trickster from West Africa, wants wisdom. But he must accomplish three apparently impossible tasks before Sky God will give him what he wants. Is he clever enough to do as Sky God asks?

"The tale moves along with the swift concision of a good joke, right down to its satisfying punch line."
(Publishers Weekly)
"Wildly exuberant, full of slapstick and mischief, this version of an enduring Nigerian trickster tale, featuring a clever rabbit, is a storyteller's delight."
(Booklist)
