Reviews
From Midwest Book Review: "Stories drawn from mythology and folklore are perennially popular with young readers. "How The Coyote Stole The Summer" is adapted from a Native American folktale by Stephen Krensky and nicely illustrated by Kelly Dupre. Coyote is tired of it being winter all year long and teams up with his friends Raven, Wolf, Moose, Elk, Stage, and Antelope to steal something called summer from Old Woman. Can he succeed? Part of the outstanding Millbrook Press 'On My Own Folklore' series, this wonderful story is highly recommended for family, school, and community library Folklore/Folktale collections for young readers."
