¡Panqueques, panqueques! (Pancakes, Pancakes!)

Illustrated by Eric Carle

Eric Carle’s bold world comes alive in this Spanish edition of his iconic picture book Pancakes, Pancakes.

El imaginativo mundo de Eric Carle cobra vida en esta edición en español de su emblemático libro ilustrado ¡Panqueques, panqueques!


The barnyard rooster crows and Jack wakes up—hungry, of course! What does he want for breakfast? A big pancake! But first, Jack’s mother needs flour from the mill, an egg from the hen, milk from the cow, butter churned from fresh cream, and firewood for the stove. Will Jack ever get his pancake?

With his trademark collage illustrations and lively text, Eric Carle has created a mouthwatering tale for young readers.

El gallo del corral canta y Jack se despierta, ¡hambriento, por supuesto! ¿Qué quiere de desayuno? ¡Un panqueque grande! Pero primero, a la mamá de Jack le hacen falta harina del molino, un huevo de la gallina negra, leche de la vaca pinta, mantequilla hecha de la nata fresca y leña para la estufa. ¿Crees que Jack recibirá su panqueque?

Con sus características ilustraciones de collages vibrantes y su texto animado, Eric Carle ha creado un cuento que les hará la boca agua a los jóvenes lectores.
