Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3—Señor Lobo thinks that he has to eat rabbit stew on a full moon or he will go insane. Mama hears the howling and warns her little bunny to be extra careful. When she leaves him alone, she advises him to not to open the door to anyone. The wolf tries to trick him into letting him in for a treat, but then decides to flush him out with a snake and some cactus molasses down the chimney. This funny story is described by the publisher as being bilingual, but Spanish words are sprinkled throughout the English narration, and kids can figure out the meanings in context. This is a great way to introduce youngsters to some vocabulary in a different language, and the words, including the masculine/feminine articles and singular/plural forms, appear in the glossary along with the definitions. Campbell's large, double-paged mixed-media cartoon illustrations expand the humor and have a Southwestern flair. Text and illustrations complement each other, making this trickster tale a good selection for bilingual storytimes—Liliana Patricia Rocha, Teton County Library, Jackson, WY
