֍Why there is No Arguing in Heaven: A Mayan Myth;
Deborah Nourse Lattimore.
(1989). [ages 6-10]
[Mayan Legends and Folk Tales]
The ancient creation myth of the Popul Vuh tells how the Gods made people first trying to make them of mud, then trees, and ultimately of maize (corn). Lattimore both tells the myth and illustrates this classic Mayan story. Based on the same myth as "People of Corn" by Gerson, this is very different version with some humor as the gods try to get it right.
