How Chipmunk Got Tiny Feet
Praise for How Chipmunk Got Tiny Feet…
Drawing from Coushatta, Navajo, Tsimshian traditions, Gerald Hausman uses native origin stories to explain the ways of the world–why certain animals have stripes while others have wings, feathers and tiny feet. Illustrated by the dazzling artwork of Ashley Wolff, each story has a message, and always the message is the same: Here is the world… we must live in it together, not apart. “The retellings, with their elements of humor, mystery, conflict, and just resolution, are eminently satisfying. Wolff’s linoleum block prints, which are enhanced with watercolor, add considerable interest to the tales.
