Sugarcane House and Other Stories About Mr. Fat

Story Summary

Six marvelous stories told by first grade DeWayne's Great-Grandma, Ma Minnie, about escaped slave Mr. Fat and his rude mule, Brownie. Mr. Fat will save the day by hook or by crook, cheat the cheaters and can always tell the right side of the law from the wrong one. Mr. Fat is a trickster every bit as charming as Brer Rabbit.
