Coyote Places the Stars (Aladdin Picture Books) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One evening, crafty coyote climbs the moon to discover the secrets of the heavens. Instead, he finds a way to make the most wonderful pictures for all the world to see. The next night, the other animals of the canyon look up to the sky, where they see a big surprise! Based on a Wasco Indian legend, this story about the origin of the constellations is joyfully retold and vibrantly illustrated.

Review:

"Striking, batik-like illustrations, on cotton fabric painted with dyes, show violet skies sprinkled with stars, and layered landscapes scenically detailed. This book pulses with the effervescent joy of color and creation, and children will love being swirled into its center." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"The onomatopoetic language makes this a natural tale for classroom reading, but the artwork can be best appreciated by independent readers." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Coyote arranges the stars in the shapes of his animal friends.
