Description

Author Barbara Knutson, who spent two years living in the Andes, based this popular trickster tale on Peruvian and Bolivian folklore. Cuy the guinea pig is very clever but his piggish appetite keeps getting him in trouble. He has plenty of fun and always manages to outsmart the farmer and the fox Tio Antonio. "A thoroughly enjoyable tale that deserves a place in most libraries." -School Library Journal

Professional reviews

"Robert Ramirez's voice does a superb job of animating the characters in LOVE AND ROAST CHICKEN. The setting is South America; the main characters are a pleasant twist on those who inhabit typical folklore. Tio Antonio, the fox, is after his dinner, guinea pig Cuy. Ramirez's portrayal of Tio Antonio is sly and sneaky. When the fox is outsmarted, you can feel his rage in the tone of his voice. Cuy, the quick-witted prey, escapes many times. Ramirez gives him a wonderful mixture of nervousness and happiness. Ramirez not only brings emotions you can hear, but also skillfully intertwines the Spanish words with the English. M.J.R.
