"Perfect for lovers of Aesop, Anansi, and multicultural and indigenous folktales and mythology."—Booklist In this folktale retold, Esperanza gives her very last pear to a beggar and is rewarded with the best pear crop she’s ever had—and the power to ensnare anyone she wants in her tree. When Señor's Death comes for her, Esperanza tricks him into climbing her tree, where he becomes stuck, unable to come down and do his work. Style: Hardcover, scuff-resistant matte finish
