The Runaway Piggy / El cochinito fugitivo

The sun shines through the windows of Martha’s Panadería onto the shelves of freshly baked Mexican treats. In the classic tradition of The Gingerbread Man, James Luna’s piggy cookie leaps off the baking tray and takes the reader on a mad dash through the barrio. Each person the piggy encounters is greeted by his laugh and the repeated refrain: “Chase me! Chase me down the street! But this is one piggy you wonzt get to eat! I ran away from the others and I’ll run away from you!” The cochinito fugitivo avoids being eaten by the long line of people chasing him through the neighborhood streets, until he meets a crafty little girl named Rosa! A retelling of a familiar story set in a colorful Latinx neighborhood.
