Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Following the success of Bear Despair (a 2012 New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book), Coyote Run is a humorous homage to the American West, with a twist that elevates love above violence. Inspired by Spaghetti Westerns, this Gallic one is about matching wits, getting distracted, disarming, and finding love. Coyote Run is a timely tale that is sure to generate much discussion and debate.

Born in 1971, Gaëtan Dorémus received his degree from the School of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg in 1999, after which he picked up a few other degrees while creating picture books and illustrations for the press. He has illustrated over twenty books.

Review:

"Taking inspiration from high-drama westerns set in dusty towns and parched deserts, Dorémus (Bear Despair) returns with another entry in the Stories Without Words series. Like its wordless predecessors, the book's squat, horizontally oriented format emphasizes the sense of a journey. In this case, it's a chase, one that opens with the red-blue coyote of the title busting out of jail, hopping on a large catlike mammal, and heading for the hills, pistol blazing. Thematically, Dorémus's story recalls another Stories Without Words tale, Béatrice Rodriguez's The Chicken Thief; in both, pursuer becomes wooer. Dressed in a shift dress and cowboy hat, the coyote is trailed by the sheriff, a rifle-wielding donkey in a plaid shirt. The two face off on a lonely mesa, but a ladybug seems to remind both of the beauty of their environs (and gives the lovers an unexpected escape route after the sheriff's men arrive). Quavery pencil lines in pinks and golds emphasize the dry heat of the setting, while beguiling details — where exactly did the fish and wine for that romantic campfire cookout come from? — make this a memorable Wild West love story. Ages 4 — 8. (Mar.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Following the success of his US debut, Bear Despair (a 2012 New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book), Dorémus' Coyote Run is a humorous homage to the American West that elevates recognition of the other above the blindness of violence. Inspired by Spaghetti Westerns, this Gallic one is a chase that is about matching wits and getting distracted long enough to see things in a newer and truer light. Focusing in on conflict and the easy resort to arms, Coyote Run is a timely tale that is sure to generate much discussion and debate. It is also a chase, and a satisfying one at that, with the book's heros ultimately evading and escaping their pursuers.
