Kids of all ages are always asking Joe Hayes, "How can it snow tortillas?" Well, now they'll know where to find the answer--at long last, Joe's signature book The Day It Snowed Tortillas is appearing in this new bilingual edition. Bloomsbury Review listed the original English-only edition as one of their fifteen all-time favorite children's books. Our bilingual edition has all the original stories as they have evolved in the last twenty years of Joe's storytelling. It also has new illustrations by award-winning artist Antonio Castro. Storytellers have been telling these stories in the villages of New Mexico since the Spanish first came to the New World over four hundred years ago, but Joe always adds his own nuances for modern audiences. The tales are full of magic and fun. In the title story, for instance, a very clever woman saves her silly husband from a band of robbers. She makes the old man believe it snowed tortillas during the night! In another story, a young boy gladly gives up all of his wages for good advice. His parents think he is a fool, but the good advice leads to wealth and a royal marriage. The enchantment continues in story after story--a clever thief tricks a king for his kingdom and a prince finds his beloved in a house full of wicked step-sisters. And of course, we listen again to the ancient tale of the weeping woman, La Llorona, who still searches for her drowned children along the riverbanks.

El Bloomsbury Review nombró la edición original de este libro entre sus 15 libros favoritos de todos los tiempos. Cuentistas han contado estas historias en los pueblos de Nuevo Mexico desde que los españoles vinieron al Nuevo Mundo, hace más de cuatrocientos años, pero Joe siempre añade sus propias matices para audiencias modernas. Los cuentos están llenos de magia y diversión. En la historia titular, por ejemplo, una mujer muy astuta salva a su esposo de un grupo de ladrones. Hace que el viejito crea que nevó tortillas durante la noche! En otra historia, un joven da todo su sueldo, con gusto, por buen consejo. Sus padres creen que es una locura, pero el buen consejo lo lleva a riquezas y un matrimonio real. El encantamiento continua de historia en historia--un ladrón inteligente estafa a un rey por su reino, y un príncipe encuentra su amada en una casa llena de hermanastras malvadas. Y claro, escuchamos el viejo cuento de La Llorona, quien todavía busca por la orilla de ríos para encontrar a sus hijos ahogados.
