Product Details


“Soto’s light tale offers a pleasant blend of family ties, friendship and ethnic pride…[and Miata is] a spunky and imaginative heroine.“-Publishers Weekly

A light, engaging narrative that successfully combines information on Hispanic culture with familiar and recognizable childhood themes….A fine read-aloud and discussion starter, this story blends cultural differences with human similarities to create both interest and understanding.”-SLJ

Light, easy reading . . . offering readers a cast and situations with which to identify, whatever their own ethnic origins.”—The Bulletin
