What's a little lamb to do about a fierce coyote that wants to eat her? Why, trick him, of course...and and trick him again...and trick him one more time! Here's a lively retelling of a Mexican folk tale by master story teller Verna Aardema, illustrated in bold, winning colors by Petra Mathers.
A hungry coyote wants Borreguita (little lamb) for a meal. Can Borreguita outwit the coyote and escape a cruel end? "Aradema and Mathers are felicitously paired in a tale of trickery rewarded that begs to be read aloud." â Horn Book
