Aletin y El Dia Que El Cielo Se Vino Abajo

Melinda Lilly, Author Rourke Publishing (FL) $18.6 (31p) ISBN 978-1-58952-189-6
K-Gr 3-South American folklore comes alive in this humorously written tale of the dawn of time. Aletin is one of a handful of people on a still disorganized earth. The sun does not know where and when to set and a star falls out of the sky. Aletin and his friends run themselves ragged trying to put things in order and have many funny little adventures along the way. By the end, the sun and the moon have found their rhythm and the animals have been created. The story not only amuses, but also reveals a creation story of the Mocobies of Argentina. The brilliant illustrations have a lovely indigenous style. Highly recommended for public and school libraries.Rebecca Thatcher, Akron, PA
