    Another uniue children's book Uncle Snake takes place in Oaxaca and is about a boy who has transformed into a snake who then jumps into the sky to become lightning My boys love Gollub's books and Leovigildo Martinez's artwork just pushed the book into their favorite range The story is uite creepy a little open ended which leaves room for discussion as well as a cautionary tale since the boy in the story experienced everything after failing to listen to his father

    I really loved this book and it is one of the few on the CLASP Americas Awards and Honors List for 1996 that had my toddlers completely engrossed The illustrations are beautiful and weird ish which is a good thing The story which is an ancient Oaxacan folk tale about how lightning came to be is really interesting I got this one from the library but I would actually consider buying this one
