Pío Pista Reader - Level One
The Pío Pista reader is another terrific ancillary. This action-packed and humorous novel traces the adventures of Pío Pista, an international spy who has to find out whether his girlfriend, María, is a double agent. He chases María through Puerto Rico, Perú, El Salvador, the Dominican Republic, Uruguay and Argentina, finding out a bit about the culture of each country along the way. The stories are written in the Damon Runyon style of first person narrative and feature dry humor, such as in Get Smart. A very fun reader that is completely separate from the Charo y Lee stories yet, follows the same vocabulary. At over 10,000 words, this novel will last an entire school year.
