Coyote: A Trickster Tale from the American Southwest
Synopses & Reviews
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
Wherever Coyote goes you can be sure heand#8217;ll find trouble. Now he wants to sing, dance, and fly like the crows, so he begs them to teach him how. The crows agree but soon tire of Coyoteand#8217;s bragging and boasting. They decide to teach the great trickster a lesson. This time, Coyote has found real trouble!
1994 Caldecott Honor author Gerald McDermott once again masterfully evokes the power of myth through simple language and brilliant art. This traditional Native American tale of the wily coyote is brought to life by his deft use of rhythmic language and bold art inspired by Zuni folklore and southwestern design. Full color.
