Twentieth-century illustrations accompany Aztec interpretations of Aesop's fables featuring the trickster Coyote. Grade 1-4 Behind this collection of fables lies a history of moral stories. Originating with Latin and Greek traditional stories, retold by Aesop, transported to the New World in Spanish, and then merged by Aztec storytellers with their own trickster tales, these fables are now translated into English. Twenty of the forty tales from an Aztec manuscript in the National Library of Mexico have been retold in English, keeping several Native American figures of speech. The trickster Coyote is prominent in each tale which ends with a moral statement.
