GERALD MCDERMOTT (1941-2012) was an internationally acclaimed author-illustrator and the creator of numerous award-winning books and animated films for children. Winner of the Caldecott Medal and two Caldecott Honors for his picture books, he was also a consultant to the Joseph Campbell Foundation on mythology in education. His acclaimed series of trickster tales consists of Raven (a Caldecott Honor Book), Zomo the Rabbit, Coyote, Jabuti, Pig-Boy, and Monkey, each of which draws from the folktale traditions of a different part of the world. www.geraldmcdermott.comFrom Booklist:
This well-illustrated book from the Green Light Reader series retells the fable of the fox and the stork. When Fox invites Stork to dinner, he serves soup in a dish so shallow that Stork cannot eat from it. Stork retaliates by inviting Fox for soup served in a jar so tall that he cannot reach into it. Finally, Fox learns "that being kind to others is the right thing to do." The characters and setting glow with colors in McDermott's lightly stylized illustrations. Accessible, satisfying fare for young readers. Carolyn Phelan
