by Wayne Ude
Seven tales based on Native American stories, all reinvented and re-imagined, each becoming new all over again and each beautifully illustrated by Abigail Rorer.
Coyote–the trickster, scapegoat, and hero of Native American mythology–figures large here, as he calls up animals and whittles people, loses and finds new mis-matched eyes, tries to rob the sun, and takes revenge on a rude village.
Recommended for ages 10 and up, School Library Journal says, “These tales, full of the unexpected, are easy to read and could be good for classroom storytelling as well as for helping to explore more facets of the nature of this enigmatic hero.”
