Amor y pollo asado (Love and Roast Chicken)
Un cuento andino de enredos y engaños
One day, high in the Andes Mountains, Cuy the Guinea Pig is searching for wild spinach to eat when Tío Antonio the Fox comes in search of Cuy to eat! Tio Antonio thinks he’s found dinner, but crafty Cuy has other plans. Quick-witted Cuy fools Tio Antonio not once, but three times. Combining striking wood block artwork with an authentic South American voice this sly trickster tale shows that clever thinking is key when you’re out-foxing the fox.
