"Hayes's language is characteristically expressive and descriptive in both languages. A bold pastel illustration that beautifully celebrates Afro-Cuban culture accompanies each story....A great acquisition for upper elementary and middle school libraries, and an excellent resource for storytellers." -Criticas, starred review "Lively, often funny and sometimes a bit scary...Eminently tellable, all the stories have refrains and songs sure to get audiences joining in." -Kirkus Reviews "A lively bilingual collection of 13 folktales from Cuba with the type of vivid color illustrations books from Cinco Puntos Press typically include." -World Wide Work bulletin "The accessibility of Hayes' vivid but streamlined language coupled with rock-solid structure of the stories themselves (replete with the repetition and building of tension that tellers and listeners rely on) make this accessible both to young readers and to storytellers and other adult readers-aloud." -Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Readers will have fun doing both with these unique and entertaining stories...A full page illustration precedes each of the thirteen folktales and provides readers with a perfect visual reference for the stories that Mr. Hayes has taken care to retell in the Cuban tradition." -Review of Texas Books "This collection of Cuban folk tales is a delicious mix of stories passed down for generations. Hayes, who first visited Cuba in 2001, fell in love with the island and its people and that love is reflected in his delightful book. These are stories that are even better when read out loud." -Tucson Citizen "Hayes has captured the essence and diversity of Cuba...Perfect for teaching bilingual students or units on world myths in the classroom. Recommended." -REFORMA newsletter "This colorful bilingual anthology of thirteen Cuban folktales has sabor, the flavor of the Caribbean, bringing the rich mixture of Spanish, African and American influences to his readers. Cuban folkloric wisdom and wit fill these pages. There is a rhythmic quality to the linguistic expression in both the English and Spanish narratives, reminiscent of the importance of rhythm in the Cuban way of life." -The American Folklore Society: Aesop Prize commendationReseña del editor:
"With a style that captures the rhythmic pulse of the Cuban way of life, the vibrant storytelling in this collection of tales by Joe Hayes will delight Spanish-speaking and English-speaking children alike. The accurate translation builds familiarity in reading and expressing ideas in a second language. The colorful illustrations reflect the warmth of Cuban folk art. We hope that this anthology will inspire young readers to gain great awareness of Cuban cultural sensibilities."-The American Folklore Society If you travel to Cuba, the people will greet you with a smile. Right away they'll want you to come to their home and eat a meal. In the meal, you'll find a mixture of foods and flavors from Spain and Africa-and from many Caribbean cultures as well. In Cuban folktales, you will taste the same delicious mixture of flavors." Folklorist and storyteller Joe Hayes first visited Cuba in 2001. He fell in love with the island and its people and began to look for opportunities to meet and listen to Cuban storytellers and to share the stories he knew from the American Southwest. He has returned every year, establishing a rich cultural exchange between US and Cuban storytellers. Out of that collaboration came this savory collection of Cuban folktales, which Joe frames with an introduction and an all-important Note to Storytellers. Joe Hayes is one of America's premier storytellers. His bilingual Spanish-English tellings have earned him a distinctive place among America's storytellers. Joe has published over twenty books. He lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and travels extensively throughout Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. Mauricio Trenard Sayago was born in Santiago de Cuba in 1963. He was raised in a home that was closely linked with art and was surrounded by the artistic debates sustained by the various artists and art history professors in his family. This environment strongly influenced him. Mauricio came to the United States in 2000, and now lives in Brooklyn.
