Pura Belpre honor recipient, Joe Cepeda, brings magical realism for the beginning reader!

Two brothers are asleep in their bed when a pinwheel flies through the window and into the hand of the younger boy. He stands in front of the window, and soon he s flying through the sky where he sees a chicken, a sheep, a cow and a pig. The wind carries the animals back to their farm and the boy back to his home, where he passes the pinwheel along to his brother.


The very newest readers will enjoy the fun fantasy and energetic artwork as they read this satisfying story with twelve simple words."
