Federico and the Wolf

Rebecca J. Gomez (Author) Elisa Chavarri (Illustrator)


Clever Federico outsmarts el lobo in this fresh and funny Mexican-American take on Little Red Riding Hood.

With his red hoodie on and his bicycle basket full of food, Federico is ready to visit Abuelo. But on the way, he meets a hungry wolf. And now his grandfather bears a striking resemblance to el lobo. Fortunately, Federico is quick and clever--and just happens to be carrying a spicy surprise Federico drives the wolf away, and he and Abuelo celebrate with a special salsa. Recipe included.
