Horn Book Review

An original bilingual tale, based on traditional myths from El Salvador, beautifully tells of the magic dogs, called 'cadejos', who are the protectors of the people of El Salvador. A great read-aloud, with heavy, primitive illustrations. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
