Reviews for Paco and the Giant Chile Plant / Paco Y La Planta De Chile Gigante

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2008 Fall
In this southwestern-flavored folktale retelling, Jack is replaced by Paco and his beanstalk by a gigantic chile plant. Spanish words are sprinkled throughout the English-language text, adding spice and facilitating learning of simple Spanish vocabulary. Desert-hued pencil and digital illustrations nicely enhance the telling--with a twist ending. Glos. Copyright 2008 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
