        Title: Coyote Sings to the Moon This book is an original story, not a traditional tale, by Thomas King, illustrated by Johnny Wales. Coyote wants to join Old Woman and the animals in singing to the moon, but the animals insult Coyote’s atrocious singing voice. Two tales, set in a time “when animals and human beings still talked to each other,” display Thomas King’s cheeky humor and master storytelling skills. Freshly illustrated and reissued as an early chapter book, these stories are perfect for newly independent Coyote Sings to the Moon, Coyote .

      Now, Coyote was known among the other animals as the Song Dog, even though his voice was rather scratchy. He loved to howl and sing his songs. He especially loved to sing when the moon was bright. So Coyote thought that if he could sing a beautiful song the star would notice him. He thought and wrote. After three days he had composed a new song. Two tales, set in a time "when animals and human beings still talked to each other," display Thomas King's cheeky humor and master storytelling skills. Freshly illustrated and reissued as an early chapter book, these stories are perfect for newly independent readers. In Coyote Sings to the Moon, Coyote is at first the cause of misfortune.
