Epaminondas underrated ancient warriors pt 1


Epaminondas and his Auntie is one of a series of books for young children written by Sara Cone Bryant and illustrated by Inez Hogan. It was first published in 1907.

The Epaminondas character is a young African American boy, and the stories are based on folk tales from the Southern states of the U.S. Like Helen Bannerman's The Story of Little Black Sambo, which was originally written about a boy from Southern India but was later illustrated in many printings with stereotypes of African-Americans, the Epaminondas books have been criticised as having racist overtones and stereotypes.

The stories' texts focus on and derive their humor from the problem of miscommunication between adults and children.

Later versions of the tale were published by Constance Egan, Eve Merriam, Mary Claire Pinckney and Cathy East Dubowski.
