“A translation of McDermott’s Caldecott winner. In this Pueblo folktale, a boy is transformed into an arrow so that he may travel between the sun and the Earth to search for his father. The wonderful illustrations have a Native American motif, with geometric shapes painted in bright desert colors that graphically convey the boy’s experiences. Perfect for storytelling and independent reading.”–School Library Journal
