About the Book

“An entertaining marriage of pictures and words.”—Kirkus Reviews

In 1996, master storyteller Joe Hayes and illustrator Rebecca Leer created A Spoon for Every Bite. It became an instant classic. In this lovely New Mexico folktale, a rich man tries to prove his wealth to his poor neighbors by using a new spoon for every bite. In the process, he’s served a pretty dish of come-uppance. A Spoon for Every Bite is available for the first time in the bilingual format for which Hayes is famous.

Joe Hayes is one of America’s premier storytellers—a nationally recognized teller of tales from the Hispanic, Native American and Anglo cultures. His bilingual Spanish-English tellings have earned him a distinctive place among America’s storytellers.
