Series:Coyote and the turtles dream : the graphic novel ; v. 2
Description:Based on the original Eagle Books characters by Georgia Perez.
In the original Eagle Books stories, Rain and his friends were about six years old. However, in this new story, Coyote and the Turtle’s Dream, they are entering the 7th grade. Once again, the eagle gives a warning to Rain, but this time it is about the disappearance of water on their reservation. Never forgetting the health messages taught to them by the eagle, the kids embark on a mystery/adventure to solve a riddle about ancient fossils that will restore the water’s flow.
Our young friends agree that the fossils and Jimmy’s disappearance are linked. They ask Miss Swallow, the science teacher, for advice. She promises to identify the fossils, warning that fossil poachers may be involved. In the meantime, the boys learn about type 1 diabetes from Arianna, a new girl who will be living with Hummingbird’s family. That evening, they are all puzzled by a speeding truck that swerves past the car driven by Rain’s father. Their stares make Rain suspect they are looking for Jimmy. Unnerved by the “driveby,” Rain is even more shaken the next day when he and Simon interview his greatgrandmother for a school assignment. She tells them a story about the day she and her brother, Delbert, followed a coyote to a mysterious cave at Shell Ridge. Inside, Delbert discovered the skeletons of giant scarylooking creatures. Not thinking, he took a bone from one of the longdead animals—a bone that Granma now places in Rain’s hand. It is identical to the two bones that Jimmy ditched. Rain doesn’t know what is going on—but he knows the eagle does!
