Overview

Paco and the Giant Chile Plant is a picture book with all the fun of a fairy tale twisted into a humorous variation. Based on the classic "Jack and the Bean Stalk" fairy tale, Polette uses the desert Southwest as an unexpected setting. Filled with prickly pears and such, our story moves from the sandy earth into a cloudy domain where anything is possible. A place where giants may bellow: "FEE, FI, FO, FUM, I SMELL THE BLOOD OF A HUMAN ONE. BE HE THIN OR BE HE FAT, FOR MY TORTILLA, I'LL GRIND HIM FLAT!" We might even solve the age old question of what happened to Jack's (Opps! Paco's) long lost Pappa.

Midwest Book Review
Paco and the Giant Chile Plant is excellent for introducing young people to the fun of learning a new language. The exuberant color artwork by award-winning illustrator Elizabeth O. Dulemba adds the perfect touch to this lively adventure. A heartwarming, positive twist on the ending of the original fairy tale.
