So, you’ve been in trouble. Your -parents tell you they’re calling the bogeyman. You laugh. There’s no such thing!
Then—you hear a sharp knock. Standing at the door is the oldest man you have ever seen. It’s el Cucuy (coo-COO-ee)! With that big red ear, he hears everything!
In this cautionary tale, storyteller Joe Hayes tells about two girls who didn’t believe in el Cucuy until he snatched them up. Of course, the story has a happy ending.
Joe Hayes has become one of America’s premier bilingual storytellers. Hayes lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Illustrator Honorio Robledo grew up in Veracruz and Chiapas, Mexico. He lives in Los Angeles.
