THE STORY:

 

Hector Armienta has adapted one of the oldest known Mexican folk tales, The Coyote and the Rabbit, and turned into a lesson about the value of an education. Narrated by two mischievous but well intentioned rabbits, Chiquita and Banana, the tale begins when a young Coyote,Scrawny, is visited by his cousin, Loco. Loco finds out that Scrawny is learning how to read, something no decent Coyote would ever do, and makes it his mission to set his cousin on the “right path”: catching rabbits for dinner! But the smart rabbit sisters lead the coyote cousins on series of misadventures, and only Scrawny's book learning saves him from sharing the ignorant and illiterate Loco's many embarrassments at the hands of the brainy bunnies. In the end, Scrawny realizes that an education is the key to a fruitful life.
