Maria Retana's Books

The Pig That Is Not a Pig/El cerdo que no es cerdo is an accurate story about the life of the wild javelina. The information that children can gather about the life and ways of these javelinas, both as adults and young piglings, is interesting and factual…and, the pen and ink illustrations by Marian Weaver are delightful. Young readers will enjoy searching the pages for other desert critters and delight in the night scenes where javelinas scare domestic animals.

Praise for The Pig That is Not a Pig
Retana’s first children’s book The Pig That Is Not a Pig/El cerdo que no es cerdo is an accurate story about the life of the wild javelina. The information about the life and ways of these javelinas is both interesting and factual. I would recommend this book to any elementary teacher who wants to expand his or her library offerings in the area of science or animals of the Southwest desert.
