Field Mouse Goes to War (bilingual Hopi-English) Grades: K- 4
Field Mouse Goes To War is the story of a brave little field mouse who pits his own courage and cunning against the hawk that is threatening the livelihood of the village of Mishongnovi by devastating its chicks. This book is the first of its kind. Before Field Mouse Goes To War, there were only literary books by non–Native authors, written in English and translated into Native languages. This book is based on spoken Hopi, and the Native illustrator, Fred Kabotie, would say later: “I liked that book because it caught the true feeling of the Hopi story, the way a Hopi would tell it.” Paperback. 2017. Kennard, Edward. Yava, Albert.
