Über diesen Titel


Two Coretta Scott King Award recipients combine their artistry in an original fable about the People, who—through the power of their storytelling—came to live at peace with Elephant, Shark, and Hawk, rulers of the Earth, the Sea, and the Air. "Myers's fable exalts the role of storytellers, and he tells his own story in a powerful resonant style. Bryan's swirling pictures in bright colors add liveliness . . . [as] he shows the People with a variety of ethnic features and clothing."—C.
