"I go where I want, I do what I want, and I take what I want!" says Coyote. In this retelling of a Native American tale from the Ute people, Coyote learns the consequences of taking what isn't his and ignoring everyone's advice. It's only with the help of a wise hummingbird that he escapes a bad end.
Set in the canyonlands of the American south-west, Caldecott Honoree Janet Stevens' illustrations are kid friendly and action-packed. A great read-aloud to gently show kids that it's not a bad idea to listen to good advice and that it's wrong to take what isn't yours.---from the publisher
