Flossie & The Fox - By Patricia C. McKissack

Flossie is a little slave girl who has to deliver eggs to a neighbor.  The only trouble is that there is a fox who lives in the woods, that wants those eggs!  The dialogue and even the narrative in this book are written in a typical Southern dialect, including such words as "aine", "yo'self", and "sho".  The artist uses light and shadow very effectively and draws in an African-American style.
