Description
A little lamb uses her clever wiles to keep a coyote from eating her up. What's a little lamb to do about a big, oafish coyote that wants to eat her? Why, trick him, of course! This folk tale from the west of Mexico is energetically told and comfortably packed with many recognizable motifs. Mathers enlarges upon the humorous elements of the story in her boldly colored paintings. Aardema and Mathers are felicitously paired in a tale of trickery rewarded that begs to be read aloud. A glossary to correct Spanish pronunciation is conveniently placed at the beginning of the tale.
