Folk Tales Told in Spanish and English

By (author) Joe Hayes, Illustrated by Antonio Castro L.

<BR><P>What happens when an old dog sitting at the dinner table with his master slides a whole leg of lamb, a big bowl of posole, a stack of tortillas and a bottle of wine to a coyote, who just happens to be under the table? A whole ruckus, that's what!</P><P>But that's nothing compared with some of the other wild and wonderful folktales gathered by author Joe Hayes in this bilingual edition of <I>The Coyote Under the Table</I>. Like his signature collection <I>The Day It Snowed Tortillas</I>, this book is full of lively characters and laugh-out-loud stories. There's a trio of unsuitable suitors who court a clever young girl and end up being scared out of their wits one midnight in a haunted church. And a greedy man who learns his lesson on a day when he couldn't stop dancing. And a spotted cat who is actually a guardian angel in disguise.</P><P>""Once again Hayes intrigues and amuses with this charming compilation.""<br>—<B>Booklist</B></P><p>""These wise and witty tales continue to repay fresh encounters.""<BR>—<B>Kirkus Reviews</B></p><P><B>Joe Hayes </B>is a nationally recognized author and storyteller.
