Coyote gotted into lots of mischif just like me. He was blue like my ears. He liked how the crows chanted and danced and flew. He wanted to do this to. I would also. It looks like fun.
They were mean and teased him by making him think he could fly iffn they stucked feathers in him. He fell. He got covered in dust and was never blue again! Poor Coyote. His tale tip got burned so it is still black too!
Which the Parsee-man bakes
Makes dreadful mistakes."
As a child I learned many things from Mr Kipling about how to (and not to) behave in this world. I adored those tales and lessons.
A few months ago my son chose Coyote on an outing to the local bookstore. He and I thoroughly enjoyed learning vicariously through Coyote. In fact, Coyote quickly became his most requested book. Last week as we were driving we saw a beautiful coyote dodge across the road. "Doggie!" my son announced proudly. "Coyote!" I corrected. It took a minute to figure out the rest of the resulting monologue but I quickly gathered that my soon was thrilled to see that Coyote's tail was indeed burnt black as pitch from his fall.
Excellent graphics, clever story. 5 stars.
