About the Book



Wily trickster Coyote is having his friends over for a little solstice get-together in the woods. A little girl unexpectedly arrives, and leads the friends through the snowy woods to the mall. Coyote shops with abandon, only to discover that filling a shopping cart with goodies is not quite the same thing as actually paying for them, in this witty critique of consumerism and consumption.



Book Synopsis



Winner of the American Indian Library Association Youth Literature Awards, Best Picture Book.

Trickster Coyote is having his friends over for a festive solstice get-together in the woods when a little girl comes by unexpectedly. She leads the party-goers through the snowy woods to a shopping mall -- a place they have never seen before.

Coyote gleefully shops with abandon, only to discover that fi lling your shopping cart with goodies is not quite the same thing as actually paying for them. The trickster is tricked and goes back to his cabin in the woods -- somewhat subdued -- though nothing can keep Coyote down for long.

Correlates to the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts:

Review Quotes




Dryly humorous cartoon illustrations in pen-and-ink and watercolor wash put Coyote's emotions on full display.

-- "Horn Book"

This witty winter tale deftly skewers the materialistic aspect of the holiday season in a humorous, trenchant way.

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

[A] splendid satirical romp, with an equally splendid profusion of watercolour illustrations by the inimitable Gary Clement.-- "Globe and Mail"

The humor is dry and affectionate, the rhyming text delights with sly turns of phrase, the watercolor cartoons are whimsical ... [A] holiday treat.-- "School Library Journal"

This critique of consumerism has the irreverent, biting humour of all King's Coyote stories.-- "Toronto Star"
