Nobody's actions make sense but I suspect that is not the point of creation myths; still it leaves me on the outside It's refreshing that children and cats and comets are the stars har of this story but alas didn't do the trick of letting me in Thank you for the two languages on the same page; the translation is graceful

Oloyou the Cat the very first creature that the God child creates is also the very first friend God child and Oloyou play together for hours on end until one day the cat falls into the void and lan. I wasn't as personally captivated by this story as I hoped to be but it is still beautifully told with lovely illustrations and is a very worthy story about how the comet came to be in the sky I also love that God created the cat first how perfect ; The tale is from Yoruba mythology and I'm not really clear if this particular version is Cuban or African influenced but that doesn't take away from the overall enjoyment of the story

review Oloyou author Teresa Cárdenas

Oloyou author Teresa CárdenDs in the dark featureless sea kingdom of ferocious Okún Aró Oloyou is terribly lonely until he meets Aró’s mermaid daughter and falls madly in love Infuriated the father flings the pair into. A Yoruba Cuban myth concerning God child and his creation of Oloyou the cat is beautifully retold in this bilingual English Spanish picture book with text by Cuban author Teresa Cárdenas and illustrations by Mexican artist Margarita Sada In the very beginning when the universe was still unformed and God child was lonely and bored he created a fluffy white companion a creature who was soft and loving and never tired of playing nor of having its back rubbed But when Oloyou falls into Nothing in the course of play and finds himself in the vast watery kingdom of Okún Aró the first feline is soon falling in love with the Infinite Sea's lovely daughter Kandili Will Oloyou and Kandili find a way to be together Or will bitter old Okún Aró manage to keep them apartI simply adored this gorgeous picture book from the story itself Yes The cat was the first creature created My love of all things feline is validated to the beautiful illustrations which manage to emphasize Oloyou's fluffy cuteness and vivid blue eyes in some scenes and the creepy darkness of Okún Aró's kingdom in others I haven't read much Yoruba mythology and had never encountered this story before so am unable to say how similar or dissimilar this Cuban variant is to the original African version In fact that was rather unclear mention is made on the front dust jacket flap of Santeria and the influence of African stories and culture on Cuba's development but no further information as to the source of this story is given which is rather frustrating Still I will be keeping an eye out for from this talented author and illustrator Definitely one I recommend to all who enjoy a good myth or appreciate beautiful picture book art
