From Yuyi Morales, this Pura Belpré–winning companion to the award-winning Just a Minute is a beautiful alphabet book, featuring text in English and Spanish. Now in paperback!
It's Grandma Beetle's birthday, and Señor Calavera (a skeleton from the Day of the Dead) doesn't know what to bring to her party. "Don't worry," says Zelmiro the Ghost. "You surely must know, the best present to give a friend is the thing she would love the most." So instead of choosing just one gift, Señor Calavera chooses: Un Acordeón: An accordion for her to dance to. Bigotes: A mustache because she had none. Cosquillas: Tickles to make her laugh. Un Chiflido: A whistle he trapped in a bag. And so on. . . .
This companion to Yuyi Morales's Pura Belpré award-winning trickster tale, Just a Minute, is a stunning picture book that functions both as a Spanish alphabet book and a marvelous story.
