Don't Throw Me in the Cholla Patch
Woodrat has a problem.
With 10 hungry packrat-baby mouths to feed he knows that he has to go out to find food for them. The moon is full, and that means it will be far more dangerous, with ravenous predators looking for an easy meal. Now, with a cupboard that is almost empty, brave Woodrat decides to venture out into the night, intent on finding something for his family to eat.
Waiting for him out in the dangerous Sonoran desert is the equally-hungry Coyote looking for a meal of his own. With Woodrat firmly in his clutches, Coyote is ready to make him the first snack of the night.
But Woodrat has a plan that might just save his skin. Can he talk fast enough and be clever enough to outwit the devious coyote and save his young family from unspeakable danger?
Grades 4-7. Ages 10-12.
