Janet Stevens is a Caldecott Honor-winning artist who has illustrated many beloved books for children, including the Anansi books by Eric A. Kimmel, along with Coyote Steals the Blanket : A Ute Tale, which she also wrote, and the Caldecott Honor book Tops and Bottoms. She lives in Colorado.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3-- "I go where I want, I do what I want, and I take what I want," Coyote brags. But when he ignores Hummingbird's warning and takes a beautiful blanket that doesn't belong to him, he finds himself relentlessly pursued by a magical boulder. Only Hummingbird can save him, but nothing and no one can change his rascally and greedy nature, as the last picture cleverly demonstrates. These illustrations provide the perfect visual foil for this comic tale based on a Ute Indian story. This retelling is considerably shortened and simplified, making the story accessible to a younger audience. Stevens's loose, breezy style imbues Coyote, a trickster figure in many Native American tales, with an appropriately scrappy and disreputable personality. Small sequential drawings, interspersed with richly colored, full-page illustrations, propel the story forward at a rapid clip. The pace and action are reminiscent of the old Roadrunner cartoons, but the art here is much more subtle and sophisticated. The scratchy line and spontaneous strokes give the book an ebullient feeling, while the attention to facial expression and comic detail deepens and enrichs the text. A beautifully designed and well-made book, Coyote deserves a place in folklore collections of any size, and will be a valuable addition to story times and read-aloud programs. --Linda Boyles, Alachua County Library District, Gainesville, FL
