the guinea pig is clever fellow, but can he hold up huge boulders, save
Tio Antonio, the sly fox, from a rain of fire, and arrange a marriage for
him with Florinda, a beautiful farm girl? Cuy promises all this and more
to Tio Antonio, who is very hungry for a fine meal of plump guinea pig.
Read Love and Roast Chicken to find out if Tio Antonio finally traps the
clever guinea pig and enjoys a tasty treat in this hilarious South American
trickster tale. The bold, colorful woodcuts in this Peruvian folk tale
are magnificent, and its fun to learn lots of new Spanish words listed
in the glossary at the end of the story. (Jean B. Bellavance for
Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2006-2007)
