McCabe says “The Most Important Critter in the Whole Wide World” is “a read aloud story, a bed-time story or a coloring book if you like.”

Gusty McCabe’s new children’s storybook, “The Most Important Critter in the Whole Wide World: Why the Coyote Howls at Night” (published by Trafford Publishing), tells young readers the story of a hungry coyote and a rooster trying to avoid becoming a meal.

The legends of the American Indians have delighted children for generations, as have stories in verse such as “The Cat in the Hat” by Dr. Seuss. Here is a tale that combines both of these elements: the Indian legend and the tale in delightful verse.

Readers will see how the rooster, on the first day that ever was, wakes the sun and all the other critters too, the coyote among them. The coyote, hungry for his first meal, decides that the rooster would be a tasty treat so he sets out to find the bird. When he does, he tries to coax the rooster down from his high perch. But the rooster is clever and things do not work out well for the coyote.

McCabe says “The Most Important Critter in the Whole Wide World” is “a read aloud story, a bed-time story or a coloring book if you like.”
