Lies and Other Tall Tales by Zora Neale Hurston Lies and Other Tall Tales, Paperback (February 2015)

While traveling in the Gulf States in the 1930s, Hurston collected and recorded some real whoppers. Young readers can enjoy these far-fetched fibs enhanced with bold, expressive collages. Full color.

Moses, Man of the Mountain by Zora Neale Hurston Moses, Man of the Mountain, Paperback / softback (December 2008)

Based on the familiar story of the Exodus, here is a new edition of a compelling allegory of power, redemption, and faith. Hurston blends the Moses of the Old Testament with the Mioses of black folklore and song to create a powerful novel of the persecution of slavery, the dream of freedom, and the redemption of the faithful.

Seraph on the Suwanee by Zora Neale Hurston Seraph on the Suwanee, Paperback / softback (December 2008)

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » A talking mule, a talking skull, a witch who slips her skin, and a man so powerful that he's not admitted to heaven or hell star in this appealing but flawed companion to What's The Hurry, Fox? and Other Animal Stories (p. 331), illustrated by Bryan Collier. Jenkins's semi-abstract, black-and-white scenes of ghosts and bones add eerie atmosphere to the six folktales; Thomas has recast Hurston's original, thick dialect into a modern idiom, while nicely preserving that country flavor: "No, Pa, that mule's done gone to talking, I tell you. I ain't going." But some of the stories are only fragments, and the collection as a whole is jumbled; a boaster named High Walker dies in one tale, but isn't introduced until a later one, and Thomas's introduction has, oddly, been placed at the end. Hurston's work merits a less clumsy introduction to young readers, and Mary Lyon's Raw Head, Bloody Bones (1991) is only one of many similar folktale gatherings with a higher chill factor. (source notes) (Folktales. 8-10) (Kirkus Reviews)
