¡El Gallo Que No Se Callaba! / The Rooster Who Would Not Be Quiet!

Written by Carmen Agra Deedy, Illustrated by Eugene Yelchin, Translated by Madelca Dominguez


The village of La Paz is such a noisy place until the new mayor, Don Pepe, passes laws for everything to be quiet. Not even the teakettle will whistle! All is peacefully hushed for seven years until a saucy gallito moves his family into the mango tree right under the mayor’s window. Now this noisy rooster can’t be quiet and does what roosters do best—KEE-KEE-REE KEE! This bilingual delight will make a fun read aloud and a wonderful addition in Hispanic stories.

    I enjoy the bilingual books. I’ll have to check this one out…and who wouldn’t want to read a book about a saucy gallito?! ;-)
