Tom King’s deadpan humor combines with award-winning artist Gary Clement’s marvelous watercolors in this wonderful anti-consumption book for readers of all ages.



Trickster Coyote is having his friends over for a festive solstice get-together in the woods when a little girl comes by unexpectedly. She leads the party-goers through the snowy woods to the mall—a place they have never seen before. Coyote gleefully shops with abandon, only to discover that filling your shopping cart with goodies is not quite the same things as actually paying for them…
