Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Crane helps Rabbit fulfill his dream of riding across the sky to the moon.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Monthly Selections - #2 February 1998
    Ages 5^-8. This retelling of a Cree Indian folktale introduces Rabbit, who wants nothing more than to view the splendor of the earth from the vantage point of the moon. He asks all the birds to take him to the moon, but only Crane is able to oblige. The flight leaves Rabbit thrilled with his new perspective and provides Crane with his long legs and red headdress. The watercolor illustrations have a fuzzy, sleepy quality, yet are clear enough that the animals depict a range of emotions, from Rabbit's dejection to Hawk's arrogance. Illustrations of some kind are on every page, with most of the pictures in panels adjacent to the text. The story itself is told in fairly short, easy-to-understand sentences, making this a good a choice for a bedtime story or for older students studying folktales.
