Please, Malese! A Trickster Tale from Haiti

Illustrated by: Emily Lisker
Age Level: 6-9
Malese, a clever lazybones, sets out to get new shoes and he briefly winds up in jail — that is, until he convinces his jailers that it's more trouble than it's worth to hold him there. Bold illustrations evoke the Haitian setting and the humor of one trickster.
