About the Author
Joe Hayes is one of America's premier storytellers. He grew up in a small town in southern Arizona where he started learning Spanish from his classmates. As Hayes got older, he began reading the work of folklorists and anthropologists and gathering the old stories from the Southwest region. His books have received the Arizona Young Readers Award, two Land of Enchantment Children's Book Awards, the Texas Bluebonnet award, and the National Storytelling Network Talking Leaves Award. He lives in New Mexico. Antonio Castro L. was born in Zacatecas, Mexico and has lived in the Juarez-El Paso area for most of his life. He was awarded a prestigious Pura Belpré Illustrator Award Honor for his illustrations in My Tata's Remedies / Los remedios de mi tata. He has also illustrated several other picture books for Cinco Puntos Press, including The Gum Chewing Rattler and My Pet Rattlesnake.

"Storyteller Hayes spins his yarn with aplomb, punctuating it with the titular exclamation. . . Tongue-in-cheek fun." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Another great tall tale from the pen of award winning storyteller Joe Hayes, meant to be savored and enjoyed many times over, just like Grandpa's Hal-La-Loo-Ya Hambone!" -- Midwest Book Review
