From the Publisher:
Hoping to rise above his level of poverty, clever Hare strikes a deal with a rich and lazy bear in which Bear will contribute the land while Hare will provide the labor for a profitable harvest.
Hare solves his family’s problems by tricking rich and lazy Bear in this funny, energetic version of an old slave story. With roots in American slave tales, Tops & Bottoms celebrates the trickster tradition of using one’s wits to overcome hardship. “As usual, Stevens’ animal characters, bold and colorful, are delightful. . . . It’s all wonderful fun, and the book opens, fittingly, from top to bottom instead of from side to side, making it perfect for story-time sharing.”--Booklist
Annotation:
Clever but poor Hare tricks rich but lazy Bear by offering to split their shared crop by "tops or bottoms". When Bear chooses tops, Hare plants root vegetable such as carrots leaving Bear nothing but worthless weeds. When Bear chooses bottoms, Hare plants corn leaving Bear nothing but empty stalks.
