"The richly drawn woodcuts by the author in three colors are the outstanding features of this South American folk rhyme offered both in Spanish and English," raved Kirkus of this splendid picture book. Antonio Frasconi, recognized internationally for his bold and striking woodcut illustrations, breathes new life into an old folk rhyme about a weary traveler who questions the elements about their effects on his aching feet. Each new line is added to the preceding rhymes, forming a chain that circles back to the beginning and a memorable chant for youngsters. Written in both languages in the simple, direct style of nursery rhymes, this volume was honored as Best Illustrated Book of the Year by The New York Times. The timeless beauty of its woodcuts and the enduring appeal of its folk poetry ensure its enduring value as both an engaging dual-language book and a visual treat for readers of all ages.

About the Author:

Antonio Frasconi (1919 2013) was an artist of international fame whose work is represented in leading art museums around the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the New York Public Library, and the Smithsonian Institution's National Gallery of Art. The Uruguayan-American artist was raised in a bilingual setting, which fostered his belief that children should be made aware of other languages early in life and led to his use of multiple languages in his award-winning picture books.
