Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Walters succinctly retells an Otoe legend set in a time when the world was ruled by animals. The animals speak the same language and ``live together in peace and happiness without argument and fear.'' Only one man dwells among them, and the creatures have taught him and watched over him. All has gone well, but Man begins to act ``differently''; he no longer follows the animals' advice, and is impolite and cruel to them. The creatures hold a meeting and decide that Man must live on his own. Only the dog and the horse elect to stand by him--to keep him company and be his friend. Walters's crisp, forthright narrative deftly distills this Native American tale, the essence of which young readers should grasp easily. Like the story they illustrate, Bowles's exquisite paintings are at once simple and sophisticated. Framed by intriguing borders, her art sumptuously depicts the beasts and the colors of the natural world in a remote era--when things were just starting to get complicated. Ages 5-up. (May)
Karen Hutt
"Once upon time, the world was ruled by creatures . . . and they lived together in peace and happiness without argument and fear." But Man began to do stupid things and didn't listen to the animals; he also began to whine when things did not go his way. After a great meeting, Dog and Horse agree to go with Man to keep him out of trouble, and that is why people today are separated from all animals except dogs and horses. Children will appreciate the dilemma about what to do with an irritating, selfish person, but they may have difficulty with the book's strong indictment of "two-legged creatures." The striking, colorful illustrations fill the pages and help compensate for this somewhat stilted retelling of an Otoe story. No source notes provided.
