Item description for Runaway Radish/El Rabano Que Escapo by Janice Levy & Sydney Wright...

It s the Night of the Radishes and Don Pedro wants to carve the best radish sculpture in town. But one radish won t cooperate. It bounces away, looking for action! Places to go, people to see, it shouts. Out of my way, you can t carve me! So begins a raucous romp as everyone in town gets involved in the chasing of the radish who is trying to escape being made into a sculpture. Stop, radish, stop! everyone begs as the chase goes on. The radish s antics include bumping into burros, tripping up the local mariachis and trampling tortillas. Busy cooks who are trying to get ready for the festival fall into their pots as the radish races by and the whole marketplace is turned upside down. Written in a style reminiscent to The Gingerbread Man, one antic builds on another until finally the rascally radish is subdued. Don Pedro takes first prize for the runaway radish that he finally carves into a queen with a crown and running shoes - and a very big mouth. Humorous sketches capture the excitement and keep the story straight as one chaotic episode after another takes place. Movement, color, and clever expressions fill the pages with wit and illumination. The Night of the Radishes is an annual festival held on the evening of December 23rd in Oaxaca, Mexico. A huge contest featuring figures sculpted from radishes is one of the highlights of this festival. The sculptures often represent scenes of the birth of Jesus or other scenes expressing the history and culture of Oaxacans. Everyone competes for first prize, a part of which is having their picture posted in the morning paper. This book is available in English only, Spanish only and bilingual full text in both English and Spanish. A keyword vocabulary page is included in the back of the bilingual edition to jumpstart language learning in both languages.
