La Llorona (yoh-RROH-nah) / The Weeping Woman is the ghost story to end all ghost stories, capturing the minds of both kids and adults in the U.S. and Mexico. In Spanish and English, master storyteller JOE HAYES retells the tale of a beautiful woman whose fear and jealousy dooms her to an eternal search for all she’s lost. It appears at first to be only a frightening story filled with mysterious events that cause children to sit wide-eyed, huddling together, listening spellbound. Yet it’s the simple, universal wisdom at the core of the story that finally works its magic in their hearts.

La Llorona es el cuento de fantasmas que supera todos los otros. Por generaciones, ha cautivado las imaginaciones de ambos niños y adultos en México y los Estados Unidos. En español e ingles, el maestro autor JOE HAYES cuenta la historia de los celos y miedo que condenó a una bella mujer a una búsqueda eternal por todo lo que perdió. Primero parece ser solo una historia espantosa, llena de eventos misteriosos, que causa que niños se sientan cerca, completamente fascinados. Pero es la sabiduría simple y universal al centro de la historia que trabaja como magia en sus corazones.

La Llorona is available in a four-color edition in both paper and cloth. Joe’s chilling story of the crying ghost woman has sold over 600,000 copies and is truly the best known and most popular story of Hispanic America. La Llorona has more staying power than Batman and Wonder Woman combined.
