Coyote and the Laughing Butterflies

Illustrated by: Harriet Peck Taylor
For Ages: 4 - 8
This delightful retelling of a Native American folktale is “a satisfying selection, creatively designed, with beautiful pictures and striking imagery” (School Library Journal).

Coyote is used to playing tricks, but in this tale, the tables are turned.

Stopping to take a quick nap by the big salty lake where he’s supposed to bring home salt for cooking, Coyote’s discovered by some mischievous butterflies. Playing their own trick, they carry Coyote home without his salt. Coyote is completely confused—until the third time when Coyote wakes up at home with his salt and discovers the butterflies have been having a bit of fun.
