Jabuti the Tortoise: A Trickster Tale from the Amazon

by

Jabuti the Tortoise: A Trickster Tale from the Amazon Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Of all the animals in the rain forest, Jabutand#237; was the favorite. His shell was smooth and shiny, and the songs he played on his flute were sweet.

But his music was a reminder, too, of the mischievous pranks Jabutand#237; sometimes played. His song reminded Tapir of being tricked, Jaguar of being fooled, and time and again it reminded Vulture that he had no song at all. When a concert takes place in heaven, Vulture offers to fly Jabutand#237; there . . . all the while plotting a trick of his own.

Gerald McDermott makes myths new again for readers of all ages, using language as vibrant and colorful as his bold illustrations.and#160;Jabutand#237; is an unusual tale of a tricksterand#8217;s fall from grace, and of how creation can sometimes come from chaos.
