One upon a time, in a land far away...

These stories have journeyed far -- over mountains, deserts, and oceans -- carried by the wind, passed on to us by our ancestors. Now they have found their way to you.

A sly fox, a bird of a thousand colors, a magical set of bagpipes, and an audacious young girl...A mixture of popular tales and literary lore, this anthology celebrates Hispanic culture and its many roots -- Indigenous, African, arab, Hebrew, and Spanish.

F. Isabel Campoy and Alma Flor Ada have retold twelve beloved stories that embody the lively spirit and the richheritage of Latino people.

The work of four leading Latino artists and illustrators highlights this unforgettable collection.
