Best book so inspiring

Gerald McDermott did a good jobon the book, 'Raven.' The Detroit, Michigan native 'Born in 1941' showed his artistic side in this book. I love the colors he uses ad the pictures are really pretty. From his artwork in the book there is no doubt that he graduated from Pratt Institute and Design. This author, illustrator, and filmmaker has some nice awards under his belt, such as the 1994 Caldecott Honor Medal for 'Raven.' This wasn't is first receiving a Caldecott honor. I find the story of Raven humourous and something that the kids will definitely enjoy. They will get tied to the book when they will want to know how Raven got the people light.

Gerald McDermott did a good job on the book, 'Raven, A Trickster Tale From The Pacific Northwest.' This book was really cute and the artwork was outstaning. I can see why this book was rewarded with the 1994 Caldecott Honor Medal. I love the colors used throughout the books. I think kids would reall enjoy this book not only for pictures, but to see how Raven saves the day and gives everyone light.
