From the Publisher:

A girl in a red hood, a hungry coyote, a napping grandma, and a basket full of tamales make for a spicy southwestern retelling of the classic children's story, Little Red Riding Hood. Isabel and the Hungry C oyote / Isabel y el coyote hambriento is a story of one girl's self-reliance and cunning in outwitting the deceptive coyote.

The villain is a hungry coyote prowling the southwest desert as our heroine, Isabel, is on her way to her grandmother's with a basket of hot tamales. Coyote quietly approaches Isabel from behind while she is picking flowers, but just as he is ready to pounce, his stomach growls alerting her. Isabel catches the coyote sneaking up on her and demands to know what he wants. Without a woodsman, but with a fun new twist, Keith Polette's Isabel and the Hungry Coyote / Isabel y el coyote hambriento is certainly a clever retelling of the old story.

This story is presented with embedded Spanish text. Take a story in English and sprinkle in a little Spanish. The word is first introduced in English and then reiterated in the same sentence, or in the same paragraph, in Spanish. Once the word is introduced, it is used in both languages within the context of the story. Illustrations, context and the different color ink with which the embedded words are printed, aid in making the leap from one language to another. The book ends with a keyword vocabulary page for learning both languages.

Available in hardcover ISBN 0972497307 AND paperback 0977090647.

From the Author:

Esther, a self-taught artist, brings the desert alive with bold color and a CrayolaŽ sort of imagination. Being a native of Toronto and a resident of Hawaii, Esther researched the flora and fauna of the Southwestern United States in order to capture the lively and colorful side of the desert in Isabel and the Hungry Coyote / Isabel y el coyote hambriento. Her rough pencil sketches turned into picturesque pastels that reveal the grainy texture of the desert sand to great advantage. Her deft use of water-soluble pastel crayons (Caran d'AcheŽ) on recycled paper brings the vivid purple, lush fuchsia and tranquil turquoise of the desert landscape into stunning focus.
