Author/artist George Crespo has created a colorful, spirited retelling of a story from the Yanomami people of the Amazon rain forest, accompanied by his energetic, brightly hued paintings. All the animals have always eaten their food raw, because they never knew it could be any other way. But Iwariwa the cayman has a special magic that makes his food hot and delicious, and he's not sharing. With clever planning and split-second teamwork, the other animals get the better of the selfish cayman and persuade him to part with his secret. Note, pronunciation guide, map. A portion of the author's royalties will be donated to Amanaka'a Amazon Network/Yanomami Health Fund.
