Each volume includes five trickster tales from various Indian tribes, including Comanche, Maidu, Ute, Zuni and O'odham peoples. The fast pace and high-spirited humor common to Coyote stories makes them appealing to early elementary-school-age children; the author has taken accessibilty one step further by retelling the stories with easy words and short sentences, making them perfect for transitional readers. Colorful acrylic paintings depicting Coyote as "shimmering" are in accordance with verbal descriptions of him common to some traditions. Each story is followed by an author's note which cites sources and often points out a story detail that reveals something about its natural or historical context. (Ages 6-9)
