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.
