An adaptation of a popular Portuguese folktale, Corre corre, calabaza is a cumulative story with repetitive rhyming text.  Funky illustrations by award winning Portuguese illustrator Andre Letria add a touch of humor to the story.  

The story is also an excellent example of the use of suffixes in Spanish to embellish a story:

No he visto vieja ni viejo, ni viejita ni viejota. Corre corre, calabaza. ¡Corre más calabazota!, respondía a la calabaza que iba rodando por el camino, ante la mirada estupefacta del lobo, el oso y el león.
