From the Publisher
This is a bilingual book for kids and dogs and even their parents.
Like all kids, Little Diego and his big sister Gabriela argue over
their new dog Sofie. She belongs to me, says Diego. No, she''s
mine, says Gabriela. It''s only when Sofie gets really sick that
they find out who their tortilla-loving pup really belongs to. Once
again, Benjamin Alire Sáenz shows he understands the chemistry and
dynamics of family, this time with a dog stirring up the recipe.
The illustrationsfor The Dog Who Loved Tortillas are by Geronimo
Garcia, who created the characters of Little Diego and Gabriela
first introduced in Sáenz''s early best-selling title A Gift from
Papá Diego (sixty thousand copies in print). Benjamin Alire Sá enz

emerging Latino literature in the United States, he has received
