Poppy or the Snake?

Toni Morrison, Author, Slade Morrison, Author, Pascal Lemaitre, Illustrator Scribner Book Company $17.95 (40p) ISBN 978-0-7432-2249-5
A smattering of picture books contribute to existing series. Mother and son collaborators Toni and Slade Morrison bring forth another modern take on an Aesop fable in Who's Got Game? Poppy or the Snake, illus. by Pascal Lemaetre. Poppy tells his grandson the tale of a ""sass-mouthed"" snake who he accidentally ran over with his truck years ago. The snake convinces Poppy to take him home for a while (""You mean to tell me you not going to take me home and give me something to eat?""). This reworking puts the focus on the value of being careful and aware.
