The Runaway Piggy / El cochinito fugitivo

The Runaway Piggy / El cochinito fugitivo
Product Description
Martha's Panadería holds trays of hot Mexican sweet bread, all ready for hungry customers in the morning. In the classic tradition of The Gingerbread Man, James Luna's piggy cookie leaps off the tray and takes a mad dash through the barrio. Each person he encounters is greeted by his laugh and repeated refrain: Chase me! Chase me down the street! But this is one piggy you won't get to eat! I ran away from the others and I'll run away from you! He avoids being eaten by everyone until he meets a crafty little girl named Rosa! Children will delight in the clever piggy's escape in this entertaining re-telling of a familiar story set in a colorful Latino neighborhood. A recipe for Mexican gingerbread pig cookies is included in English and Spanish.
