The Max Reddick Experience

The People Could Fly: American Black Folktales told by Virginia Hamilton and illustrated by Leo and Diane Dillon
"The well-known author retells 24 black American folk tales in sure storytelling voice: animal tales, supernatural tales, fanciful and cautionary tales, and slave tales of freedom. All are beautifully readable. With the added attraction of 40 wonderfully expressive paintings by the Dillons, this collection should be snapped up."
