Seriously though, the one that came to mind was 'Where the Sidewalk Ends' by Shel Silverstein.

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_nr_n_...nic%2Cn%3A2785

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_nr_n_...nic%2Cn%3A2786


here are some that I like because some are bilingual and feature U.S. American Indians & Mexican American Indian stories and myths

La mujer que brillaba aún más que el sol / The Woman Who Outshone the Sun
http://www.amazon.com/mujer-que-bril..._sim_b_title_1

From Publishers Weekly
More beautiful than the sun, loved by the whole of nature, purveyor of quiet goodwill, Lucia Zenteno is a part of the story-telling tradition of Mexico's Zapotec Indians. In this English-Spanish retelling, Lucia's fate at the hands of unkind strangers is captured in artwork glowing with color and vitality. When the dazzling girl arrives in a village, it is no surprise that the river falls in love with her, rising "from its bed . . . to flow through her shining black hair." The villagers are less welcoming, however, and only on discovering the loss of their glorious river do they repent of their cruelty toward the mysterious Lucia. While the plot is somewhat limited and moralistic (the Golden Rule is heavily applied) and the writing occasionally plodding, much of the imagery is refreshing--"she combed out the fishes, she combed out the otters." Surreal illustrations, calling to mind a stylistic mixture of William Joyce and Karen Barbour, highlight the richness of the folktale convention and perfectly capture a sense of place. Ages 7-up.

The Harvest Birds/ Los pajaros de la cosecha
http://www.amazon.com/Harvest-Birds-...368611&sr=1-14

Book Description
Juan Zanate likes to sit under his favorite tree dreaming of becoming a farmer like his father and grandfather. But when his father dies, there is only enough land for his two older brothers. In this enchanting and inspiring story, Juan learns to determine his own destiny. The Harvest Birds offers lessons on the traditions of rural Mexico, the importance of respecting nature, and the possibility of making dreams happen.

Here's another favorite of mine but I can't remember the title. It was about a white dog with black spots, and he ran away from home and got dirty so he turned into a white dog with black spots. Remember that one?
