Paco and the Giant Chili Plant

Keith Polette (author), Elizabeth O. Dulemba (illustrator)

Publisher: Raven Tree Press ISBN: 9781621671404

Paco and the Giant Chile Plant is a picture book with all the fun of a fairy tale twisted into a humorous variation. Based on the classic "Jack and the Bean Stalk" fairy tale, Polette uses the desert Southwest as an unexpected setting. Filled with prickly pears and such, our story moves from the sandy earth into a cloudy domain where anything is possible. A place where giants may bellow: "FEE, FI, FO, FUM, I SMELL THE BLOOD OF A HUMAN ONE. BE HE THIN OR BE HE FAT, FOR MY TORTILLA, I'LL GRIND HIM FLAT!" We might even solve the age old question of what happened to Jack's (Opps! Paco's) long lost Pappa.

Runaway Radish

Janice Levy (author), Sydney Wright (illustrator)

Publisher: Raven Tree Press ISBN: 9781621671992

It's the Night of the Radishes and Don Pedro wants to carve the best radish sculpture in town. But one radish won't cooperate. It bounces away, looking for action! So begins a raucous romp as everyone in town gets involved in the chasing of the radish. Written in a style reminiscent of "The Gingerbread Man," one antic builds on another until finally the rascally radish is subdued. The Night of the Radishes is an annual festival held on the evening of December 23rd in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Moon Over the Mountain

Keith Polette (author), Michael Kress Russik (illustrator)

Publisher: Raven Tree Press ISBN: 9781621671855

A fun-filled retelling of a traditional Asian tale in which a discontented stonecutter is never satisfied with each wish that is granted him. In this variation, a vivid Southwestern landscape helps set the story. We meet Agipito who, like his Asian counterpart, is a poor stonecutter. Time after time, Agipito's wishes are granted, but, each time, he finds something wrong with the wish he is given. Finally, when Agipito wishes to become coyote--a favorite trickster character in many folktales--he finally is happy and disappears into the desert. Agipito learns, humorously, that what you wish for may not always be what would be best for you.
