"With lush romantic paintings that are both realistic and magical, this bilingual retelling of a New Mexican folktale combines many mythical themes of enchantment and transformation...Heroes and monsters, horror and romance: a great read-aloud."--Booklist "Pajaro Verde is an unforgettable picture book story for young readers and would be a welcome addition to any school or community library collection. "--Midwest Book Review "This book, with large full-page illustrations, offers a positive morality lesson on the dangers of envy and greed." --Children's Literature "Hayes' prose is unfailingly smooth and accomplished, both in English and in Spanish, and whether read or told. The illustrations are large, detailed, and imaginative: a sound match for the story." --School Library Journal "This week I read PAJARO VERDE aloud in three or four sessions. I could have read it all in one long session because my students were pleading for more when I stopped. Their eyes lit up with each new turn of the plot. You should have heard the gasps and silences." --Caroline Yeryomenko, bilingual teacher "Joe Hayes, one of America's best storytellers, has done it again. He tells another classical story...with mastery that only a master storyteller can do. Highly recommended for children 10 years and older and Southwestern cultural studies." --Reforma "This sophisticated tale will appeal to older children and adults alike. It would be an excellent resource in a middle school or high school classroom...But most important, it could be read for the sheer enjoyment of a good story." --Review of Texas Books "This is a charming, complicated and surprising tale that extols the virtues of faith, hope and persistence...A real gem, this book is a must-have for young readers." --Southwest Book Views
