Where the paleta wagon rings its tinkly belland carries a treasure of icy paletasin every color of the sarape . . .As she strolls through her barrio, a young girl introduces readers to the frozen, fruit-flavored treat that thrills Mexican and Mexican-American children. Create a masterpiece, make tough choices (strawberry or coconut?), or cool off on a warm summer’s day–there’s so much to do with a paleta.
CARMEN TAFOLLA is a widely anthologized, award-winning Mexican American poet and author. Her previous books with Tricycle Press include What Can You Do With a Rebozo? and What Can You Do With a Paleta? She lives in San Antonio, Texas.
