This book is lovely in both words and illustrations. I am a fan of trickster tales and this one gives a wonderful introduction to Raven, one of the recurring tricksters from the Pacific Northwest. The illustrations are done in traditional PNW style, and the story tells the tale of how Raven brought light to the people by becoming a child and playing on his grandfather's indulgence.

A wonderful read for kids and adults of all ages but I would love to use it in an elementary school as an example of how stories can help us think about some of the big questions in life--why is the sun in the sky? Is it hard to say no to a toddler? Did Raven do the right thing? ( )

Through art and the magic of a legend another story is being told to young readers. Raven, A Trickster Tale from the Pacific Northwest is a Caldecott Honor Award Book. The story begins as Raven was drawn to light by the edge of the water. He had an idea to trick the Sky Chief and his Daughter and take the light for people. Raven's dedication to his people, allowed his smart, tricky self to get what he wanted the most, light for his people. This classic legend connects children to local Native Legends about how things came to be. It also connects young children to the culture of America's First Nation People. Allowing young readers to learn more about their heritage through their myths and legends that have been passed down through People for generations. ( )

Raven wants to help the people of the world have light, he tricks the sky king and his daughter into giving it to him and unleashes it on the world.
This was a good read. The illustrations are beautiful, I liked how raved was flat and graphic against a more realistic style. The story was familiar and foreign at the same time. I like the idea of introducing different cultures by taking a familiar format that is slightly tweaked. ( )

Author Gerald Mcdermott weaves a trickster tale of the young Raven and his mission to steal the light, the sun, from the house of the Sky Chief. Raven pierces through the dark skies to help the world regain its light. He does this by disguising himself as a pine needle and drops on the water of the bowl of the Sky Chiefs daughter as she drinks him and gives birth later to a son, the raven child. i enjoyed the fact that Mcdermott told true Native american trickster tale. Raven was cunning, and resourceful , but ultimately was attempting to restore natural balance. Young children love stories that allows the main character to be shown doing good, even though they are resourceful in accomplishing this task. ( )

This is a traditional tale from the Pacific Northwest Native American cultures. In a land that doesn’t have light, the Raven searches to the end of the earth to find light. When he finds it, he pulls a trick allowing him to be born to the chief’s daughter. As an infant, the Raven manages to get hold of the light (sun) and then transforms back into a raven and flies away with the sun. The Raven then places the sun in the sky and gives the people light.[return][return]In some ways, this book seems to parallel the creation story. It can be used to give students a different perspective on how the Native Americans thought about how things, such as light, came to exist. [return][return]Reading Level: 2.8[return][return]Genre: Traditional literature – legends & myths
