The Three Little Tamales By: Eric A Kimmel Illustrated By: Valeria Docampo
There are three little tamales that decide one day to follow the run away tortilla from Tio Jose and Tia Lupe's taqueria. They have found out if they stay they will be eaten. Off they go into the wild. The first one makes a house out of sagebrush, the second makes a house out of cornstalks, and the third one makes a house out of cactus ribs. Senor Lobo comes around and they out smart the crazy Wolf and live happily ever after with the run away tortillas as well.
I love this story! It is a great addition to any Three Little Pigs collection. The illustrations are beautiful and make the story come to life. The tamales have great expressions and distinct personalities as well. My fourth and fifth graders enjoyed listening to this one aloud. A great elementary read.
I borrowed this from the school library.
