Summary
A story anthology from award-winning author Patricia C. McKissack, who has been credited with changing the face of children's literature with her rich writing that celebrates the expressions of African Americans. Grab a glass of lemonade, head to the porch, and listen to these great stories. Meet a trickster who spins an enormous whopper at the State Liar's contest. Watch a little old lady slickster outsmart Frank and Jesse James. And come face to face with a man some folks believe may have died up to twenty-seven different times!
