Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Coyote finds trouble wherever he goes. Now he wants to sing, dance, and fly like the crows, so he begs them to teach him how. The crows, however, decide to teach Coyote a lesson instead. This is the third volume in Gerald McDermottand#8217;s series of Trickster Tales. and#8220;Bold shapes and expansive double spreads (as well as an economically pared text) recommend the book for story hours large or small; pair it with McDermottand#8217;s more mystical Raven for some vibrant cross-cultural contrast.and#8221;--The Bulletin

Synopsis:
