The Runaway Piggy / El Cochinito Fugitivo
Each person the piggy encounters is greeted by his high laugh and the repeated refrain: "Chase me Chase me down the street But this is one piggy you won't get to eat I ran away from the others and I'll run away from you " The cochinito fugitivo avoids being eaten by the long line of people chasing him . . . until he meets a crafty little girl named Rosa
Children and adults too will delight in the clever piggy's escape from Martha's Panaderia in this entertaining retelling of a familiar story set in a colorful Latino neighborhood. A recipe to make Mexican gingerbread pig cookies is included in both English and Spanish.
