Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The growing interest in multicultural themes, combined with the seemingly endless supply of folktales from all corners of the world, is a boon for readers, as many of these stories are translated and presented in picture-book form. This classic trickster tale from Ayutla, Mexico, pits a gullible coyote against a fetchingly fluffy lamb. The fluff is deceiving, however--resourceful Borreguita has nerves of steel and gleefully outmaneuvers the hungry coyote at every turn. Mathers ( Sophie and Lou ; The Block Book ), one of the reigning queens of quirkiness, injects Aardema's ( Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears ; Traveling to Tondo ) fluid, humorous text with her own deliciously skewed point of view, starting with the slyly subversive endpapers (complete with bogus hieroglyphs) that constitute a sparkling sendup of Southwestern art and ending with the final image of the defeated coyote literally slinking off the page. Ages 4-8.

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3. A clever lamb outfoxes a hungry, dim-witted coyote in a triumph of brains over brawn. Vibrantly hued, expansive illustrations of the Mexican countryside illuminate a story that honors imaginative action.

This book was a family favorite whem my boys were toddlers but it is good for older cildren as well. I recently took this book, along with others for a read-in-day(adults come to read to the children)to a seventh grade class which was comprised of youngsters with a limited English understanding; they howled with laughter and loved it. The simple tale from Ayutla is great for all ages of children who still posses a twinkle in their eyes when the underdog comes out on top. The lamb demonstrates his cunning to trick the coyote and save his life. Besides the good story the book is full of fantastic artwork that will captivate a youngsters imagination despite the onslought of electronic media. Recommended for city, county and school libraries, and of course families who enjoy reading to their children.

One clever little lamb outwits a sneaky and hungry coyote until he thinks he has her trapped. Borreguita (roll those "r"s) finally sends the coyote packing, never to return. This children's book richly deserves all of the honors it received.

My one year old insists on us reading this book to him at least 5 times a day. He stares at the pictures and loves when we read it playing each of the characters. We wish they would publish a board book version. We need to buy a new copy as he has ripped out of couple of pages carrying the book all over the house with him.
