Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The sun shines through the windows of Martha's Panadería onto the shelves of freshly baked treats. The bakery holds tray after tray of hot Mexican sweet bread -- conchas, orejas, cuernitos, empanadas, and cochinitos -- all ready for hungry customers. In the classic tradition of The Gingerbread Man, James Luna's piggy cookie leaps off the baking tray and takes the reader on a mad dash through the barrio, past Lorenzo's Auto Shop, Nita's Beauty Salon, Leti's Flower Shop, and Juana's Thrift Shop. The telephone repairman, the bus driver...each person the piggy encounters is greeted by his 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 through the neighborhood streets...until he meets a crafty little girl named Rosa! Children -- and adults too -- will delight in the clever piggy's escape from Martha's Panadería in this entertaining re-telling 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.
