The Tale of Rabbit and Coyote
Preview: Hear it

Poor Coyote! Whats he doing, hanging upside down in the farmers house, next to a pot of boiling water? Howd he wind up underneath the jicara tree, getting bonked by rockhard fruit? Who tricked him into whacking a wasps nest with a stick? And why is he always howling at the moon?Because of Rabbit, thats why! Longtime collaborators Tony Johnston and Tomie dePaola look to the folklore of Oaxaca, Mexico, for this nutty, naughty tale of trickery and hijinks. Written with sly humor and illustrated in the vibrant golds, blues, and reds of the Southwest, this is a story with a flavor as distinctive as chile peppers.
