Coyote attempts to join them, but his voice is so terrible they beg him to stop. He is crushed and lashes out - who needs Moon anyway? Furious, Moon dives into a pond, plunging the world into darkness. But clever Old Woman comes up with a plan to send Moon back up into the sky and, thanks to Coyote, there she stays.

In Coyote''s New Suit, mischievous Raven wreaks havoc when she suggests that Coyote''s toasty brown suit is not the finest in the forest, thus prompting him to steal suits belonging to all the other animals.

A hilarious illustration of the consequences of wanting more than we need.
