How the Gods Created the Finger People

A Mayan Fable

Essentially a morality play passed on by the Honduran illustrator’s grandmother, the Gods mete out final justice in a world where the Finger People suffer discrimination at the hands of those larger and wealthier than they. Go Finger People, Go! the voice in your head will say when you come up for air between the decorative Mayan-style paintings that accompany the story. A bi-lingual Spanish-English fable, the book is enchanting, ushering listeners into the past and across continents while reminding them of core values equally useful in the here and now. Ages four to eight.
