You may find that Roadrunner's Dance is just what you are looking for. In this Southwestern creation tale, Desert Woman creates a new animal to help keep the bully, Rattlesnake, under control. She gives the creature gifts from Quail, Raven, Owl, Blue Jay, Heron and Eagle. The result is Roadrunner, an awkward conglomeration of parts, who in the end, prevails over the fearsome rattlesnake.

This book was received in good time in good condition. The illustrations in this book are colorful and captivating. I like the lesson that roadrunner is clumsy when he first tries his hand at walking, running, dancing. Desert Woman encourages him to keep trying, though other creatures are disappointed. Roadrunner practices and masters his skill and is able to help the community deal with a bullying rattle snake.

I am 8. I did not really like this book. First of all you should NOT create a new creature only to do something you want. That is very selfish and stupid! Seriously. Second, it was just weird. Roadrunner was just born, which means he's a baby. Why would they send out a little baby to go against the bully? They don't actually work together.
It also called a tortoise both a tortoise and a turtle. Those are not both the same thing. Duh. A turtle has flippers and lives underwater. A tortoise has legs and lives on land. It's a TORTOISE, not a TURTLE. So that can easily be missed, but it's inaccurate.

My 2 sons, now 7 & 8, have LOVED this book for over 3 years now. The illustrations are wonderful, it has a nice ending, and provides interesting facts about roadrunners.

This is a great gift for anyone interested in Native American folk tales, birdlife of the SW USA, and stories where an evil-doer, in this case the bully-rattlesnake, is overcome and taught a lesson.

My daughter and I read this in the library for the first time and she couldn't get enough of it. It's a wonderful fable with breathtaking illustrations. Great to add to your collection, especially for those living in the desert.

Our grandson loves this story. It compliments the "story-telling" his grandfather does with him whenever he comes over. Full of color, family, community, nature and the connection between the animal world and people. Written in a way that children will see with eyes gazing at the pictures. Read it, share it, you'll love it.
Loved the pictures and the story. I am using it with a unit with my students. Couldn't find this book locally.
