The Coyote Under the Table

Midwest Book Review

“The Coyote Under the Table / El Coyote Debajo De La Mesa” by Joe Hayes, a gifted teller of folktales in English and Spanish, is a collection of ten humorous folktales in English and Spanish for a middle to young adult reader audience. A Junior Library Guild Selection, “The Coyote Under the Table” is completely self-motivating bilingual quality education for young adults and kids. Every story begins with a witty charcoal sketch of the main characters and proceeds in a format with the left page in English and the right page in Spanish. It is impossible to open this book without wanting to finish it, or without laughing! Joe Hayes is a master of the ironic, comic storyteller’s art, recognized throughout the United States for his bilingual tales from roots of an Hispanic culture in northern New Mexico. “The Coyote Under the Table” gives everyone who reads it a taste of wry wit, good humor, and fun, New Mexican flavored (with chili peppers)!
