Synopsis

Estos cuentos han viajado por largo tiempo -- sobre montañas, a

través de mares y desiertos, llevados por el viento, contados por

nuestros antepasados. Ahora llegan hasta ti.

Una astuta zorra, un pájaro de mil colores, una gaita alegre, y una

jovencita audaz...Esta antología de cuentos populares celebra la

cultura Hispánica y sus múltiples raíces -- indígena,

africana, árabe, hebrea,

y española.

F. Isabel Campoy y Alma Flor Ada han recontado doce cuentos estelares que

reflejan la fuerza del espíritu y la extraordinaria herencia de los

Latinos.

Cuatro ilustres artistas latinos enriquecen esta colección inolvidable.
