The Cazuela That the Farm Maiden Stirred
From Library Staff
A maiden makes rice pudding with the help of all the animals on the farm.
Spicy tribute to the classic "The House that Jack Built": "This is the duck that went to the market to buy the sugar to flavor the leche made fresh by the vaca while teaching the cabra that churned the crema to make the mantequilla that went into cazuela..."

SummaryAdd a Summary
Are you familiar with the cumulative tale format? Well Ms. Vamos takes the idea and twists it a little. A variety of different farm animals aid a farmer and a farm maiden as they work together to make some rice pudding. A donkey picks limes, a duck buys sugar, a hen grates, and by the end everyone has done their part. Of course, in the midst of some dancing the pudding almost gets out of hand, but our heroes are able to save it in time. The end of the book includes a Glossary of Spanish Words and a recipe for the pudding.
