Perfect Picture Book Friday
Holy Squawkamole! (Sterling Children’s Books, 2019) retold by Susan Wood and illustrated by Laura González is a fresh look at an old tale.
Red Hen wants guacamole. But she has no avocados, tomatoes, onions or cilantro. Neither Coati, Snake, Armadillo, nor Iguana will help. I love how Red Hen surprises her friends and the reader.
There’s backmatter which includes info about guacamole and a glossary of terms. Susan writes fiction and nonfiction picture books. Read more here.
You can see a variety of Laura’s illustrations here.
