PRIMITIVO AND HIS DOG

KIRKUS REVIEW

An oversized photograph and story book which gives a sense of being on the inside of village life in Taxco, Mexico. Primitivo's daily round of fun and work and school, of sliding on the hills with his playmates, or sharing everything with his beloved dog. Then Fonzo has his leg broken by a car, and Primitivo does everything possible to earn money to send him to the city vet. The chance finding of a silver bracelet, its return and the reward, provide the climax of what is a slender thread of story to accompany some excellent photographs. One way to introduce facts of Mexican life to third and fourth graders.
