    1. "The Magical Adventures of Pretty Pearl" is a fantasy book and was also a pick for an audio book. There were so many pages that this was going to be the audio, I also read along with the audio as it played. This book was published in 1986 and is intended for children the age group of I. This book is about a seagul that is curios about mankind and what there is to offer with them. She lives in africa and the day that she wants to explore mankind is when she sails right down onto a slave ship from [...]


    2. magical folklore! a really interesting and unique weave of West African and African American gods and stories set in historical 1870's Georgia. deals with the complicated re-constructionist era post slavery. the characters are almost like comic book heroes. the dialect slowed me way down; the whole book is written in non-standard English. get ready for discussions of race and culture!


    3. I just don't understand how Virginia Hamilton was so awesome at collecting and retelling folktales but so boring when it came to telling her own. Had to read this for class, read as much as possible, gave up when I realized it was just not going to happen. Also, problematic Native Americans.


    4. This is something of an odd book. Pretty Pearl is an African child goddess, who travels to the US with John Henry.I tend to remember odd bits.s like the hidden Cherokee settlement, whose primary export is ginseng.





    5. This book is written in a particular dialect, which is most certainly not my own, although it is a book that needs to be read aloud. It is a lovely fairy tale with fascinating historical roots.
