Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's the Spring of Creation, and all of the animals are busy doing what they do best. Suddenly, a strange, furless, shell-less creature appears in their midst and the animals are mystified by the strange being. The bear knew that this creature would not be as strong, the deer knew it would not be as fast, and even the grasshopper knew it was not going to hop and screech like him. What follows is a raucous debate about what to do with the helpless being. Eat the creature? Defend the creature? Leave it to fend for itself in the forest? The fate of humanity rests in the paws and wings of the animal community. Acclaimed author Victor Villasenor returns, once again, to capture a traditional children's tale for a new generation. In fresh, colloquial prose Villasenor's second children's book echoes the oral tradition, as he recalls a story that his mother told him as a child. Brought to life by bold illustrations, this playful fable celebrates the relationship between humans and the animals in the natural world.

Synopsis:

In the Spring of Creation, the animals gather around a newly arrived creature and decide that it is funny and cute--a joke of Mother Nature--and work together to save this first human child from extinction.
