Paco and the Giant Chile Plant/Paco y la planta de chile gigante (Bilingual English/Spanish)… by Keith Polette
Just loved this book! A lovely twist on a classic fairy tale. I live in Los Angeles, so the clever way Spanish and English are mixed together was very fun for me, and also for my niece, who is much more fluent in Spanish than I am. Also loved the illustrations. They seemed to also be a twist on the classic, and made me smile.
Think the book is very well done. A sweet treat! Mucho Gusto!

I just received this in the mail. What a wonderful book!! I really enjoyed it and did my children. We are currently studying spanish and this is a nice way to include vocabulary while telling a story that they know and love. The illustrations are wonderful and my children have asked for it to be read again-already!

Glad to hear you liked it too. Do you know if it's okay for me to donate my copy to my Public Library? I live in a multi-lingual part of Los Angeles, and know that the book would be a big hit.

3: Hmm. It would be a good idea to check with the library for their policy on ARCs, but I doubt the publisher would complain as long as the donation was after the official book release.

I strongly recommend checking with the library though, because they might just put it with the sale books instead.

3: Your niece didn't want it?
