Description
Cardell the coyote's life is mostly wonderful; he has a perfectly good mama and a perfectly good daddy, although they live in different parts of the desert. Then a suitor named Otis comes calling, and Cardell feels a grrr form in his throat. Otis can't make jalapeño flapjacks or play Zig-the-Zag anything like Cardell's daddy, and so Cardell waits for Mama to say "Adiós, Otis." But what will happen if she doesn't? The author of the National Book Award nominee The True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp sensitively chronicles the formation of a stepfamily for readers 4 to 7, while Jill McElmurry's textured gouache illustrations skillfully evoke the desert Southwest.

"[McElmurry's] illustrations revel in the desert setting, her homey paintings evoking the look of weather-beaten folk art while contributing to the story's overall humor and sweetness."—Publishers Weekly
