THE DAY IT SNOWED TORTILLAS

Tales from Spanish New Mexico

by Joe Hayes
Usually ships within 48 hours
$15.98
Qty:  


Kids of all ages are always asking Joe Hayes, “How can it snow tortillas?” Well, now they’ll know where to find the answer. Readers of all ages will delight in these magical tales. In the title story, for instance, a very clever woman saves her silly husband from a band of robbers. She makes the old man believe it snowed tortillas during the night!

In another story, a young boy gladly gives up all of his wages for good advice. His parents think he is a fool, but the good advice leads to wealth and a royal marriage. The enchantment continues in story after story: a clever thief tricks a king for his kingdom and a prince finds his beloved in a houseful of wicked stepsisters. And of course, we listen again to the ancient tale of the weeping woman, La Llorona, who still searches for her drowned children along the riverbanks.
