Description

A collection of twenty-five African-American folktales focuses on strong female characters and includes “Little Girl and Bruh Rabby,” “Catskinella,” and “Annie Christmas.” By the author of The People Could Fly.
Virginia Hamilton, who previously won a Newbery Medal and a MacArthur Foundation grant, gives us 17 pugnacious and heroic female characters in a collection of tales that demonstrates the breadth of African-American cultural tradition. The characters in Her Stories, which won the 1996 Coretta Scott King Award, are strong, competent, and sometimes bigger than life, like the “coal black and tree tall” Annie Christmas. Drawn from a variety of sources, the tales in Her Stories have been crafted to blend together smoothly while remaining true to their original tone. Text and art are laid against a buff background in a stylish, oversize format, with a heavy binding built to stand up to the repeated use that’s sure to come.
