JABUTÍ: The Tortoise – A trickster tale from the Amazon
By Gerald Mc Dermott

Jabutí’s shell was smooth and shiny, and the songs he played on his flute were sweet. But his music was a reminder, too, of the mischievous pranks Jabutí sometimes played. When a concert takes place in heaven, Vulture offers to fly Jabutí there . . . all the while plotting a trick of his own.

Love and Roast Chicken- A Trickster Tale from the Andes
By Barbara Knutson

The eye-catching colored woodcuts, which so vividly depicted the fauna and flora of the Andes Mountains in the original version, decorate this edition, which remains a delightful tale for both young Spanish speakers and learners.
