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.
