Sister Rabbit enjoys visiting her friends and relatives in the forest. She also enjoys playing tricks on the other animals, and sometimes Sister Rabbit’s tricks get her into trouble.
Inspired by the many rabbit stories from the Pueblo Indians of New Mexico, this story of Sister Rabbit and her antics show us a trickster animal, wily and lovable, who can fool her friends but needs to learn some lessons about how to get along in life.
“It’s no trick! Shkeme Garcia has written a simple fable that teaches a powerful lesson about jokes that go too far. Sister Rabbit’s Tricks should be recommended reading for adults as well as kids.”
-Carla Aragón, author of Dance of the Eggshells
