About Trickster Tales Trickster Tales A folk tale about an animal or person who engages in trickery, violence, and magic.

Characters There are not many characters, usually two. One character is a good and clever trickster and one is a "bad" character. The animals have human characteristics. Talking animals are common in trickster

tales. Setting The setting is often not important. It is not fully described. Time and place indicated with traditional phrases: "In a far away land," "Once upon a time."

Problem A strong character takes advantage of a weaker character. The action may be repetitive, often in threes. The strong character remains confident until the end.

Solution The weaker character will play a trick.

The solution is short and to the point. The story may teach a lesson. The story may explain why something occurs.
