Juan Bobo likes nothing better than to play with his puerco, his pig. So when his mother asks him to take good care of the pig while she goes to church, la iglesia, Juan promises that he will. But little does his mother imagine what mischief Juan will get into!
In this updated folktale that is spiced with Spanish words and some very modern twists, skilled storyteller Felix has created his own high-spirited version of Puerto Rico's folk hero, Juan Bobo. And illustrator Christy Hale's bold, stylish linoleum-block prints perfectly capture the spirit and Caribbean flavor of this humorous story.
