A good retelling--you can hear it as you read it; it would be fun to learn to tell for school groups. Everyone could get up and do the snow dance and chant for snow. The source notes are missing, but apparently will be included in future editions. The illustrations remind me a little of gold old Wile E Coyote and Roadrunner cartoons. ( )

A hip and hilarious fable perfect for wintertime

Rabbit loves the winter. He knows a dance, using a traditional Iroquois drum and song, to make it snow--even in springtime! The other animals of the forest don't want early snow, but Rabbit doesn't listen to them. Instead, he sings and dances until more and more snow falls. But how much snow is too much, and will Rabbit know when to stop?

This stylish and oh-so-funny story is a modern take on a traditional Native American fable from master storytellers Joseph and James Bruchac.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 14:02:47 -0400)

A long-tailed rabbit who wants a nibble of the highest, tastiest leaves uses his special snow song in the summertime, despite the protests of the other animals.
