Many traditional tales center on being clever. Many animals are represented as being more clever than others. Some examples include foxes, Anansi the spider, and rabbits. Sometimes the trick being pulled can backfire and the trickster becomes their own downfall. Today we have stories of trickster, dimes, and woodcutters. We’ll hear from Diane Ferlatte, Cindy Rivka Marshall, and Bil Lepp. And as always, we hope these stories will inspire you to share your own stories and memories with those you love, and with us!
