From the Publisher
Annotation This picture book is based on a Mayan legend. When a drought hits his home land, a young boy battles a fierce Rain God to save his people. Colorful cut-paper artwork accompanies the text.
Editors Note 32 pp. Pub: 9/95".An unusual story of a young Mayan ballplayer who, defying the priest's prophecy of a drought to come in the year ahead, challenges the rain god to a game of pok-a-tok . . . The great beauty of the volume and its lesson on Mayan culture make it a unique and worthwhile purchase".--School Library Journal. Full-color illustrations.
Editors Note 2 The ancient Mayan belief that the future was divinely decreed and could not be changed is the basis for this original tale of a boy who must defeat the Rain God in a ball game to save his people from disaster. Mayan art and architecture were the inspiration for the spectacular cut-paper artwork.
