WHY THERE IS NO ARGUING IN HEAVEN: A MAYAN MYTH, by Deborah Nourse Lattimore, illustrated by author. Harpercollins: Ny, Library ISBN: 0-06-023718-X $14.89 ($19.89 Can.)

The creator god, having made the world, wishes for beings who are capable of worshipping the gods. Three gods compete in this task but the Maize God succeeds in forming people who kneel to worship their creators. Lattimore shapes this Mayan creation myth into a strikingly illustrated narrative that is entertaining and instructive. Fine work. --Kirkus Reviews
