Editorial Review

Barb Marchand's vital, expressive watercolours bring the creatures alive. Her adroit portrayal of self-important Coyote in the telling but hilarious How Names Were Given adds to his personality. The touching humanity of this story is the stuff of great legends. And Marchand's illustrations echo the compassionate but musical voice that tells this story.
