Tops and Bottoms
by Janet Stevens

A trickster tale reminiscent of Brer Bear and Brer Rabbit. In this title, clever Hare outsmarts lazy Bear and ends up with all they grow in their garden. Steven's vibrant illustrations are kid-friendly and so full of emotion that even the lazy Bear exudes personality!
