Description
Of all the animals in the rain forest, Jabutí was the favorite. His shell was smooth and shiny, and the songs he played on his flute were sweet. But his music was a reminder, too, of the mischievous pranks Jabutí sometimes played. His song reminded Tapir of being tricked, Jaguar of being fooled, and time and again it reminded Vulture that he had no song at all. When a concert takes place in heaven, Vulture offers to fly Jabutí there . . . all the while plotting a trick of his own. For nearly three decades, Gerald McDermott has been making myths new again for readers of all ages, using language as vibrant and colorful as his bold illustrations. This newest addition to his award-winning trickster series--his first book in nearly half a decade--is an unusual tale of a trickster's fall from grace, and of how creation can sometimes come from chaos. AUTHOR GERALD MCDERMOTT is an internationally acclaimed author-illustrator and the creator of numerous award-winning books and animated films for children. Winner of the Caldecott Medal and two Caldecott Honors, he is also a consultant to the Joseph Campbell Foundation on mythology in education. www.geraldmcdermott.com AGES: 4-8
