Mouse, Bird, Snake, Wolf

Almond, David. Mouse, Bird, Snake, Wolf. Candlewick Press, 2013.

The gods created the world, but then they got lazy and spent their days napping.  Meanwhile, three humans find some missing pieces to the gods' creation, and they decide to get creative themselves.  Some of the results are fantastic, while others are nearly disastrous.  This adorable illustrated book will be a favorite among fans of mythology as well as reluctant readers.

Recommended for: middle grade, tweens
Red Flags: a couple of the pictures of the gods show them mostly unclothed; some of them are very clearly female
Overall Rating: 5/5 stars
