Grade 6 Up—As they did in The Green Man: Tales from the Mythic Forest (2002) and The Faery Reel: Tales from the Twilight Realm (2004, both Viking), the editors have assembled 26 stories that present tricksters around the world. A shape-changing Japanese fox-girl comforts a lonely American boy; three generations of oil barons run afoul of Hermes and three human summoners protesting the family greed; an albino Cajun girl fools the devil. Settings are mostly other than present day and include ancient times. Readers who pay attention to the author's note will learn much about tricksters worldwide and their various natures. Each author's background is profiled, and while only a few have written books for children, all are previously published short-story writers. This excellent collection is bound to find an audience among experienced readers of the genre but is attractive to less-able readers, as well, for the short, punchy stories and an always-engaging trickster character.—Susan Hepler, formerly at Burgundy Farm Country Day School, Alexandria, VA

I fell in love with Datlow/Windling collections when my Mum introduced me to The Faery Reel: Tales from the Twilight Realm and have been bowled over repeatedly with each successive one I find. You will very much enjoy these tales of Coyote, Loki, Raven and other trickster figures from world mythology.

Great blend of old and new trickster tales. Some were godly, some were mere mortals, and even one was a demi-goddess.Read more
