Cuckoo/Cuc£: A Mexican Folktale/Un cuento folkl¢rico mexicano (Spanish and English Edition)

cuckoo ehlert

Cuckoo is beautiful. Trouble is, she's lazy. She never does her share of work—that is, until a field fire threatens the season's seed crop and Cuckoo is the only one who can save it. But will she risk harming her lovely feathers by flying through the thick smoke and flames?---from the publisher

Vain and selfish Cuckoo learns a lesson in humility and generosity when she undertakes a brave task in this tale told in both English and Spanish. “A book almost as much a piece of folk art as it is a folktale.”--Kirkus Reviews
