Carol Ober's stunning cutout oil pastels just might overcome the tedium of this wordy retelling of a Mexican legend. With its might-makes-right themes, however, the story lacks color and context. Tezcatlipoca, the sky god, and Quetzalcoatl, the wind god, decide to steal the music from the Sun and bring it to their silent world.

Wonderful retelling of a Mexican Myth. Hal Ober explains his source and his reasons for any deviations from the myth, while wife Carol Ober (the illustrator) takes two trips to Mexico for her inspirations of art. Taking pictures of artifacts, using books, and even taking classes to inspire her illustrations, the art is a wonderful representation of ancient art in Mexico. Thus giving Hal a wonderful backdrop to his story. May 27, 2016 Julia rated it liked it.

This Mexican pourquoi tale explains how music came into the world. So, the sky god, Tezacatlipoca, sends the wind god, Quetzalcoatl, to bring the musicians to earth. The wind god is successful. The earth rejoiced and all were happy, learning and spreading music until the earth was covered. The story was simple and pleasant, explaining who music came to be on earth. The real draw to this book is the illustrations. They are beautiful, colorful, images inspired by Mexican mythology.

The wind god, Quetzalcoatl, climbs to the House of the Sun and brings back musicians - a flute player, a wandering minstrel, singers of lullabies and love songs - who fill the silent earth with music: ""Soon people learned to sing and play,.

Excellent book and spellbinding pictures!

My younger son loved this book. Actually, maybe he just loved hearing his Dad say "Quetzacoatl" and "Tezcatlipoca".

He still loves music, and makes music. And he does know music is the gift of the divine. I like to think reading this book (and discussing the beautiful artwork) with him helped.

While there are some issues between the text and the pictures, there is no better storybook to grab the attention of young students studing ancient American archaelogy, folklore and/ or effective book illustration. Each page is a jewel. Grade-A!
