The Legend of the Coquí Trade Book (Hardcover)

Written By Georgina Lázaro
Illustrated by Bruno Robert
Critically Reviewed
Long ago in Puerto Rico, the animals ate, slept, and snacked all day—every day. The queen of the forest, the parrot, knew this wasn’t good, so she challenged them to a race. They each had great skills—the snake slithered, the pelican cawed, and the turtle just yawned—but they were excited and got ready to run. Everyone strutted their stuff except the frogs. No one paid attention to them. They were too tiny. Could this be their chance to get noticed?

Georgina Lázaro

Georgina Lázaro was born in Puerto Rico, the second of eight siblings. To entertain her sisters and brothers, she became a storyteller, but she never thought she would ever write her stories down. Nevertheless, many years later, she became a writer and poet.

Bruno Robert

Bruno Robert delights in extracting the intense, funny, and tender moments from the stories he illustrates. He has a soft spot in his heart for the little guy, and enjoys helping them find their voice. He lives in Normandy, France.

Reviews

The movement-filled illustrations are as dynamic as the race itself, with display type adding playful emphasis. Make room for this book on the pourquoi shelf.

—Kirkus Reviews

One small frog successfully crosses the finish line and is rewarded with the sound heard in Puerto Rico to this day. This attractive book offers an exciting variety of curriculum possibilities related to science and language. Highly recommended.
