Wolf is a friend to everyone, even Raccoon, who likes to tease him. Then one day Raccoon goes too far. He covers Wolf’s eyes, so that Wolf does not know night from day.
In his misery, Wolf calls out to the birds. Woodpecker, Blue Jay, Cardinal, Oriole, Hummingbird, Goldfinch, Owl, and Wood Duck fly to his aid. Wolf wants to thank them with a gift. But first, he says, he must find that rascal Raccoon . . .
Harriet Peck Taylor’s dignified retelling of this tale from Seneca lore is filled with mischief and fun and “explains” two of nature’s mysteries–how the wolf came to be seen as wily and wise, and how the birds became resplendent with color. The artist’s breathtaking batiks bring the story vividly to life.
