A Coyote Solstice Tale

Item Details

Winner of the American Indian Library Association Youth Literature Awards, Best Picture Book. Trickster Coyote is having his friends over for a festive solstice get-together in the woods when a little girl comes by unexpectedly. She leads the party-goers through the snowy woods to a shopping mall -- a place they have never seen before. Coyote gleefully shops with abandon, only to discover that fi lling your shopping cart with goodies is not quite the same thing as actually paying for them. The trickster is tricked and goes back to his cabin in the woods -- somewhat subdued -- though nothing can keep Coyote down for long.

The author of this book never used quotation marks in any speaking of the characters, it was very hard to understand!!!

When the animals came to coyote's cottage, they had a good dinner. In the nick of time, a girl wearing a reindeer hat came. I liked this because it showed how not to be greedy.
