Little Tricker the Squirrel Meets Big Trouble the Bear. Illustrated by Barry Moser.
by Kesey, Ken.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. This wonderful chidlren's tale was first told to Ken Kesey by his grandmother and tells the story of the squirrel Little Tricker and how he bamboozled Double-Big, the double-hungry grizzly bear. Kesey's tall tale from the Ozarks serves as a fine vehicle for him, proving ample enough for his quirky vision and his freewheeling use of language--his dialogue crackles, his forceful images and metaphors tumble one after another in an inexorable rush. Moser's watercolors capture the strange, strong flavor of the tale and provide emphatic, snapshot-like portraits of its characters.
