Mama Crow and her hungry babies learn an important lesson in greed and gullibility from Mischievous Raven

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-4?Mischievous Raven tricks Mama Crow into believing that he is helping her secure some seal meat for her children. Then, he tricks the young birds into believing that he is cooking the meat for them. The lessons, on greed and on trust, are made entirely by implication in this traditional Makah trickster tale. The illustrations effectively pair black ink outlining with soft gouache bodycolor: the style is bold and dynamic. A ladybug adds a spot of red (and extra interest) to every spread. In the background, in contrast to Raven's selfishness, the Makah people are seen as a community. (Mama Crow's headstrap basket is modeled after theirs.) Native flora and fauna add unobtrusive local flavor. Even the fact that Crow and Raven resemble one another suggests another level to the message.?Patricia (Dooley) Lothrop Green, St. George's School, Newport, RI
