Synopsis

Lord of the Animals by Fiona French

Coyote has created the world and its creatures, and now he gathers a council to decide how they will make the being who will rule over them all. As the animals start to disagree fur and feathers begin to fly - until Coyote suggests they each make a clay model and then choose the best. Unknown to all of them, however, crafty Coyote has a plan of his own...Fiona French's boldly-illustrated retelling of a Native American Miwok myth gives an intriguing explanation of how human beings began.
