Kali's Song by Jeanette Winter
Kali is sent out to hunt, like the other men in his family. But he finds a new use for his bow...
Schwartz & Wade sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you). It has been published and you can find a copy at your local bookstore.
Kali is a musician, not a hunter. While the others hunt mammoths and other prey, he sits on a hill in the moonlight and "plays" his bow. His music is so pretty the stars come closer for a look.
This is a sweet story filled with beautiful illustrations. I especially like the artist's use of handmade paper to make the illustrations look 3D.
This is a nicely put together story that should touch the heart of any child who is musically inclined or artistic in any form.
