Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-8–Junie López' great imagination and active mind capture elements of New Mexico' folklore as he introduces readers to the mysterious and supernatural in his world. A magical river bed fills up with torrential waters; an enchanted owl is hit with a stick and a woman shows up with the splinters on her face; and plenty of witches and ghosts make an appearance. Striking black-and-white illustrations accompany the energetic, down-to-earth narrative that takes readers through the stories while delineating relationships among different family members and neighbors. García' Spanish version of these stories is rich in expressions and added details that enhance its charm.–Narda McCarthy, Para los NiñosÖ Consultant, Weston, FL

Format: Paperback
"Rattling Chains and Other Stories for Children" is a bilingual collection of scary stories from new Mexican folklore that author Nasario Garcia first heard as a child growing up on his family's ranch in New Mexico. The stories are wonderful, scary, spooky, with cultural anecdotes and additions that point to a deep experience and awareness of history and affinity with New Mexico's exotic past blend of cultures. These are stories meant to be read or shared, or even secretly explored by flashlight by an adventurous 9 year old under the bed covers or in a tent! The paperback copy is written in both Spanish and English, and sparse, deft black and white illustrations embellish each of the five tales. Watch out for brujas disguised as small owls, or coquimbos, and on no account should you enter into a bargain with any entity suspected of being a bruja, or witch! Rich in oral tradition and southwest folklore, "Rattling Chains and Other Stories for Children" is sure to provide painless cultural education for children ages 8-13.
