The Adventures of MARCOS THE WISE

THE ADVENTURES OF MARCOS THE WISE- A New photo illustrated children/adult book by Marvin Niebuhr
Marcos Caliente is a jalapeno pepper who is called Marcos the Wise because he stands up to his enemy, Phatkat, and the greedy growers of Phlamco who want the whole world to eat test tube food. How does Marcos defeat those who want to put him under the ground? Well, you must remember that once upon a dream Marcos was a tiny little sprout in the earth. No stranger to the natural soil of life, he likes it there better than anywhere else. But it's as he says, "Those who wish to bury me should remember that I come from the earth and the powers of the earth reside within me forever." Follow the adventures of Marcos Caliente, the clever jalapeno pepper who makes the world a better place for all to live and grow wise just like him.
