Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3—Grandma has warned Jessie to keep away from her golden pear tree. Now his ball is stuck in it and he is sure she will be angry. He turns to his busy grandfather, uncle, cousin, and sister for help but their suggestions only lead to a broom, a shoe, a chicken, and a cat getting stuck in the prized tree as well. Doubtful, Jessie finally decides to tell his grandmother what has happened and she smartly replies, "I'm not cross with you. Family is more important than even my tree." Together they manage to get almost everything free from the branches. Everything except...Grandma. This cheerful bilingual tale is sure to make children smile. The large, colorful, acrylic and pencil cartoons pop on every page. Santillan's amusing story will prove to be a handy selection for children, parents, and teachers alike.—Angélica Sauceda, Anaheim Public Library, CA
Children's Literature - Rosa Roberts
This bilingual story is truly pleasurable due to the Spanish words blended into the English story line. Any young bilingual reader will be able to use the context clues and repetition of translated words to figure out the meaning of the opposite language words. In this fictional story a boy who has been told to stay away from his Grandma's pear tree finds himself in a quandary when his ball gets stuck in the tree. Lo and behold he seeks the advice of others to get the ball from the tree but finds more things trapped as he attempts to retrieve his ball. Things such as his shoe, a broom, a chicken, and a cat are trapped by the end of the story. When his Grandma discovers what has happened she grabs a ladder but finds herself being stuck in the pear tree after everything comes down. The Spanish expressions are hilarious with "?Ay, caramba!" and ?Ay, Chihuahua!" The illustrations are playful and exaggerated for young readers. It is a gem of a read! Reviewer: Rosa Roberts
