The Thunder King.

The twins, Tantay and Illanti, usually do everything together. One day, mother asks the boys to do two different tasks. As they are working, strange things happen to Tantay. Sensing trouble, Illanti enlists the help of animals and strange people to get his brother back. The illustrations in this Peruvian folk tale reinforce the feelings of the twins as they go through their adventures to return to their mother. Children will be enchanted by the condor and the traveling basket. Ages 4-12. Reviewed by Joan M. Hildebrand, Assistant Professor, Towson State University, Towson, MD
