Reviews for Isabel and the Hungry Coyote / Isabel Y el Coyote Hambriento

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2004 Fall
This retelling of "Little Red Riding Hood" is set in the desert and features a brown-skinned girl who encounters a hungry coyote while en route to her [cf2]abuela[cf1]'s house. Polette smoothly integrates Spanish words into his text, and although Szegedy's busy illustrations would have benefited from a less anarchic palette, her coyote is a distinguished villain who gets his just desserts, Latin style.
