A Coyote Solstice Tale
Wily trickster Coyote is having his friends over for a little solstice get-together in the woods when a little girl comes by unexpectedly. She leads the friends through the snowy woods to the mall - a place they had never seen before. The trickster goes crazy with glee as he shops with abandon, only to discover that filling a 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. Thomas King is known for his fiction featuring Canada's Native people, while Gary Clement's artwork has appeared in several popular children's books. A Coyote Solstice Tale blends King's brilliant deadpan humor and Clement's evocative watercolors in this witty critique of consumerism and consumption aimed at all ages.

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.
