  • >> LUCIA: Hello, my name is Lucia Farnham-Hudson, and I am a librarian at the San Jose Public

  • Library. The book that I'm reading today is called 'Coyote Steals the Blanket.' It's a

  • Ute tale, and it's retold and illustrated by Janet Stevens.

  • >> (reads) Coyote darted in and out, back and forth among the rocks.

  • "I go where I want, I do what I want, and I take what I want," he bragged. "I should

  • be crowned King of the Desert." Just then, Hummingbird zoomed by.

  • Whirr! Whirr! Whirr! Coyote's ears twitched. "There's that bird

  • again," he muttered.

  • "You're going the wrong way," Hummingbird said. "You should take the high road. It's

  • safer." "Leave me alone," said Coyote. "I go where

  • I want, I do what I want, and I take what I want."

  • "There is danger ahead," warned Hummingbird. "Danger?" said Coyote. "I'm not afraid of

  • anything. You can't tell me what to do!" Coyote turned and ran off.

  • Hummingbird called after him, "Up ahead there are some beautiful blankets. Whatever you

  • do, don't touch them!" "Why not?" cried Coyote.

  • "Because they don't belong to you," answered Hummingbird.

  • "Hummingbird doesn't know what she's talking about," thought Coyote. "How can there be

  • blankets out here in the middle of nowhere."

  • After a while, Coyote squeezed through a narrow gap. He gasped when he saw what was on the

  • other side. Blankets! "That silly old bird was right," he thought.

  • "Those blankets are beautiful. But why are they draped over those rocks in the middle

  • of nowhere?"

  • Coyote ran over and sniffed one of the blankets. "I would look fine dressed up in this. I could

  • wear it as a new coat."

  • "Now, what was it Hummingbird said? That I'm not supposed to touch these blankets? What

  • does she know?" Coyote put on his fine new coat and dashed

  • away.

  • He felt great as he traveled along. "I wish someone were around to see me," he

  • thought. Rumble, rumble, rumble.

  • "Oh, maybe that's someone now!" The ground started to shake.

  • Rumble, rumble, rumble. "Whoever it is sure is big and noisy," said

  • Coyote. RUMBLE, RUMBLE, RUMBLE.

  • Coyote glanced back. "That's not someone. That's a rock. And it's coming after me!"

  • Coyote ran faster. RUMBLE, RUMBLE, RUMBLE. The rock picked up speed.

  • "That rock looks like the one that was wearing my blanket," said Coyote, "but now the blanket

  • belongs to me."

  • Coyote ran on and on through the canyon. Finally, the rock disappeared.

  • "No rock in sight," thought Coyote. "I can outrun a rock anyday."

  • RUMBLE, RUMBLE, RUMBLE. The rock was back. It was coming around the

  • cliff.

  • "Oh, no," cried Coyote, and he dashed off.

  • Each time Coyote stopped and glanced back, the rock was getting closer.

  • Coyote tried to run faster. He was getting tired.

  • Finally, exhausted, he collapsed in the middle of the path.

  • "Sure I'm safe now," he said.

  • But--RUMBLE, RUMBLE, RUMBLE--the rock was still there.

  • Coyote jumped up and ran off.

  • Mule Deer was grazing nearby. "Hey, Mule Deer," Coyote called out. "Can

  • you help me? A killer rock is trying to crush me, and I'm weak from all this running. You're

  • so strong, you could stop that rock with your powerful antlers."

  • "I am strong, Coyote," Mule Deer agreed, puffing out his mighty chest. "I will help you."

  • RUMBLE, RUMBLE, RUMBLE. Mule Deer lowered his giant antlers just as

  • the rock came crashing toward him.

  • CRACK went the antlers. BOOM went Mule Deer. RUMBLE, RUMBLE, RUMBLE went the rock. It headed

  • straight for Coyote. Coyote howled and darted away.

  • He looked back. The rock was dangerously close. RUMBLE, RUMBLE, RUMBLE. Coyote's paws ached

  • and his muscles hurt. "Who does this rock think he is?" he thought.

  • "I am Coyote. GO AWAY!" he screamed. But the rock rolled closer.

  • Coyote saw Big Horn Sheep resting on the mountainside. "Hey, Sheep," he called out. "Can you help

  • me? A killer rock is trying to crush me, and I'm weak from all this running. You're so

  • strong, you could stop that rock with your powerful legs."

  • "I am strong, Coyote," Big Horn Sheep agreed, puffing out his mighty chest. "I will help

  • you."

  • Big Horn Sheep lowered his head and kicked his back legs as the rock came crashing toward

  • him.

  • CRUNCH went his hooves. BOOM went Big Horn Sheep. RUMBLE, RUMBLE, RUMBLE went the rock.

  • It headed straight for Coyote. "Not again!" yelped Coyote and darted away.

  • It wasn't long before Coyote could go no further. "Help!" he howled. "Someone save me from the

  • killer rock." "Give back the blanket," said a tiny voice.

  • Coyote looked up. There was Hummingbird. "Go away," cried Coyote. "This is my blanket.

  • I will never give it back." "Then you will be running forever," said Hummingbird.

  • "I can't run anymore," said Coyote. "Then you will be crushed," said Hummingbird.

  • "There is a spirit in the rock--the ancient spirit of the great desert. You have taken

  • what does not belong to you. Now you must give it back."

  • "No!" shouted Coyote. "Yes!" cried Hummingbird.

  • "No!" "Yes!"

  • "No!" "Yes!"

  • RUMBLE, RUMBLE, RUMBLE. There was that rock again.

  • "Help!" shouted Coyote. "I should leave you to be crushed," said Hummingbird.

  • "But I can't stand to see an animal hurt, even a coyote."

  • She whirred her wings with all her might. She created such a tornado that the dust flew,

  • the wind roared... and the rock rolled to a stop on Coyote's tail.

  • Coyote looked over his shoulder. "You stopped the rock, Hummingbird!" But now my tail will

  • be as flat as a beaver's." "THEN GIVE BACK THE BLANKET," said Hummingbird,

  • "and I'll fix your tail." Coyote pulled and pushed, but he couldn't

  • get the rock to budge. "All right," he said finally. "You win. Here's your old blanket.

  • Now, fix my tail!"

  • Hummingbird took the blanket. Then she whirled her wings again until the dust and wind swirled.

  • She whirred and she whirred. With a crack, the rock fell apart.

  • Hummingbird whirred a little more, and Coyote's tail fluffed up.

  • "This place is full of killer rocks and crazy birds," said Coyote. "I'm leaving!"

  • Coyote dashed off. Hummingbird shook her head.

  • "That Coyote," she said. "Will he ever learn?"

  • >> LUCIA: What do you think?

  • (reads) NO!

  • >> LUCIA: And that was 'Coyote Steals the Blanket.'
