DescriptionIn the classic tradition of The Gingerbread Man, James Luna's piggy cookie leaps off the baking tray in Martha's Panaderia and takes the reader on a mad dash through the barrio, past Lorenzo's Auto Shop, Nita's Beauty Salon, Leti's Flower Shop, and Juana's Thrift Shop.
Each person the piggy encounters is greeted by his high laugh and the repeated refrain: "Chase me! Chase me down the street! But this is one piggy you won't get to eat! I ran away from the others and I'll run away from you!" The cochinito fugitivo avoids being eaten by the long line of people chasing him . . . until he meets a crafty little girl named Rosa!
Children and adults too will delight in the clever piggy's escape from Martha's Panaderia in this entertaining retelling of a familiar story set in a colorful Latino neighborhood. A recipe to make Mexican gingerbread pig cookies is included in both English and Spanish.
