Synopsis: In this adaptation of a familiar story, a father and son take the advice of different people on how they should carry their chilis to market.
Gr. K-1. New readers will get lots of phonic practice in this very simple version of an old folktale. A Latino boy, Pepe, and his father pick a basket of chiles, load the basket on their burro, and then get advice from a series of travelers about how to carry the chiles to market. "No, no! Poor Pepe!" says one advisor, so Pepe gets on the burro. But then it's "No, no! Poor Papa!" who gets on behind Pepe, and so on, until Papa, Pepe, chiles, and burro end up in a tangled mess: "Basket on burro. Burro on Papa!" The pictures are large and bright, but they don't always show the action clearly. Still, adults and kids will talk about what's going on as they sound out the words together and enjoy the silly slapstick. Hazel Rochman
