An evocative collection of short stories by a three-time Pura Belpré honoree. Now available in paperback!

When Carmen Teresa receives a notebook as a holiday gift, the guests suggest she write down their own childhood stories, which they tell. But Carmen Teresa, who loves to cook, collects their family recipes instead!

With energy, sensitivity, and warmth, Lulu Delacre introduces readers to a symphony of colorful characters whose nine stories dance through a year of Latin American holidays and customs. Countries include Mexico, Puerto Rico, Argentina, Guatemala, and Peru. Seventeen delicious and authentic recipes are included!

Lulu Delacre was born to Argentinian parents and grew up in Puerto Rico. Her award-winning books for children include Golden Tales: Myths, Legends and Folktales from Latin America; Arroz con Leche: Popular Songs and Rhymes from Latin America; and her Scholastic Pura Belpré Award Honor Book, The Bossy Gallito (text by Lucia M. Gonzalez)...
