Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In this pointed allegory, Pancho, a young rabbit, sets out for El Norte to find his father, who is late returning from the great carrot and lettuce fields. He falls in with a ravenous coyote who offers to guide him over the border (for a price), but when the food runs out, so does Pancho’s luck. In a rather large coincidence, he’s rescued from death by his Papá. Along the way, Pancho crosses a river, climbs a fence, and passes through a tunnel guarded by uniformed, bribe-taking snakes. Tonatiuh shapes his story along strong folkloric patterns, and he adds atmosphere aplenty in arresting, flat folk art with cultural references (coyote is the term for someone who smuggles people across the border). He closes with a critical, research-based author’s note about who illegal immigrants are and the dangers they face, capped by a list of web reports and resources. The depiction of the border’s barriers and those who patrol them may be discomfiting for some, but with so little on the topic available for younger readers, it’s good to have a book that can be read at several levels. This will spark strong responses and needed discussion. Preschool-Grade 1. --John Peters

Review

STARRED REVIEW
"In both prose and art, Tonatiuh expertly balances folkloric elements with stark, modern realities; Pancho Rabbit’s trip has the feel of a classic fable or fairy tale, with the untrustworthy coyote demanding more and more of him."
(Publishers Weekly 2013-04-01)

Format: Hardcover
This is the story of a Mexican family who turns to migration for financial support. Pancho Rabbit and the Coyote: A Migrant's Tale was published on May 7, 2013. It is a heart-wrenching fable with a modern twist. The story revolves around the idea of migration in search of a better life.
Father rabbit (and other "papas" of the community) make a decision to head north (to the United States) to work on the carrot and lettuce fields. He had hoped to work and save money for his family. Years pass, and finally it is time for Papa Rabbit to come home, the family plans a large fiesta for his homecoming, but he never shows up. Pancho Rabbit sets out on a mission to find his father, with the help of Senor Coyote, they make it to the United States. When Pancho Rabbit and Coyote run out of food, the Coyote decides he will eat Pancho Rabbit. When Pancho Rabbit cries out, Papa Rabbit hears his call and comes to rescue him. Pancho Rabbit is able to lead Papa Rabbit (and the other workers) back home safely where they all celebrated with a fiesta.
Every elementary-aged child should have this book read to them to further their appreciation and empathy for alternate cultures. Despite this family's struggles, we all share the common theme of deep family ties and LOVE!

Great idea! Wish I had thought about adapting Aesop so cleverly. Congratulations to Duncan Tonatiuh; auspicious surname, too! --Marco Portales

A tale for young listeners which is frank about exploitation which can occur in border crossing but manages to keep the young rabbit safe in the end, as appropriate for the audience. The book filled a gap for our church library.

Excellent story that is accessible to young children & can inspire a conversation about immigration. Tonatiuh's drawings are exceptional & my son loves his work!

Pancho Rabbit is a retelling of the Red Riding Hood story from the perspective of a young Mexican boy who is looking for his father a migrant worker up north. It tells of his travails in a playful way that illustrates the perils of travellng north and crossing the border. It's primarily a tale of family closeness and love and the difficulties they face together, told in a way that children will appreciate. I was very impressed by the artwork and the storytelling and have bought copies for my son and all his cousins...

My 3 year old is starting to enjoy the more complex/exciting stories, and this totally delivered. As I was reading it, I was thinking wow, it's like a kid version of "The Bridge" which I am watching. Also, this book did a great job integrating a few Spanish words.
