Rain Player by David Wisniewski

Book Description

The ancient Mayan belief that the future was divinely decreed and could not be changed is the basis for this original tale of a boy who must defeat the Rain God in a ball game to save his people from disaster. Mayan art and architecture were the inspiration for the spectacular cut-paper artwork. "The visual excitement of these pictures gives the book immediate and lasting appeal." -- Booklist, starred review
