Pancho Rabbit and the Coyote: A Migrant's Tale

by Duncan Tonatiuh

Published by Abrams, 2013
32 pages
ISBN: 978-1419705830

Ages 6-10

The lives of migrants crossing into the United States from Mexico is the subject of this pointed allegory. Young Pancho Rabbit agrees to a Coyote's price to guide him over the border so he can go in search of his father. Pancho and his father are eventually reunited, but not before Pancho's harrowing journey in which he encounters various predators underscores the challenges and dangers faced by those who make the decision to cross. In addition to his arresting visual style, Tonatiuh's story includes a powerful author's note in which he discusses the reasons why so many decide to make such a difficult journey.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
