bilingual stories

THE COYOTE UNDER THE TABLE: EL COYOTE DEBAJO LA MESA by Joe Hayes (Cinco Puntos 2011) presents brief folktales in English and in Spanish. Trickster tales, archetypes, fables: they are all represented in these stories, many of which have a humorous bent. A janitor saves the life of a beloved parish priest, a clever woman eludes amorous suitors: readers will enjoy these stories whether read aloud or read alone. <15>
