This original folktale set in Cameroon is full of adventure and sly humor. Lloyd Alexander's story of a young man visiting -- and then becoming -- the village fortune-teller is brought to vibrant life with some of Caldecott Medalist Trina Schart Hyman's most memorable artwork. Both children and adults will relish The Fortune-tellers. "A funny, playful story that evokes the irony of the human condition." -- dren, most of which she also illustrated. She lives in Westchester County, New York. Susan Jeffers's award-winning work includes Brother Eagle, Sister Sky, The Midnight Farm, and Hiawatha (all Dial).
