From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2–This retelling of an Asian folktale is set in the American Southwest. A poor, tired stonecutter is bored with his lot in life. One day he wishes that he were a rich merchant, and the Spirit of the Desert makes it happen. When he discovers that the sun has wilted his fruits and vegetables, Agipito wishes that he were the sun. When the wind causes a dust storm and blots out the sun, he says, Oh, how I wish I was el viento, and again his wish is granted. Next, he becomes a mountain. Agipito finally finds happiness when he wishes to become a coyote because now his vida was no longer set in stone. The text is in English with a scattering of Spanish words. Although it is easy to discern what the words mean in context, there is also a glossary, but not all of the words in it include a definitive article. The digitally produced, full-page illustrations are rendered in a palette of slate blues, teals, and earth tones. The artwork has a wonderfully surreal quality and seems to leap off the page. Pair this title with Pat Mora's Listen to the Desert/Oye al desierto (Clarion, 1994) and Ann Whitford Paul's Mañana Iguana (Holiday House, 2005) for a desert-themed bilingual storytime program.–Rebecca Hickman, Sherman Library at NSU, Fort Lauderdale, FL
