In this third book about the four friends -- Conejo (a rabbit), Tortuga (a tortoise), Culebra (a snake) and Iguana -- bilingual counting and vocabulary are the backdrop for a humorous tale. When Conejo can't make her cactus butter dulces because she stubbed her toe, Culebra devises a very loud and ingenious plan to help her forget her pain and get all the friends involved in making the candy. A glossary, pronunciation guide and a no-cook recipe are included.
"Brian and Rosi Amador perform the story with energy and a smile, giving distinct voices to each character and presenting the Spanish-language words (nicely defined in the text and in an accompanying glossary) with brío. Light original music with a Mexican flavor dances in the background. A delightful production."-School Library Journal
"A comical takeoff on the familiar Little Red Hen story, this upbeat read-along is brought vividly to life through Brian and Rosi Amador's tandem narration. ...Soft Latin background music is a lilting accompaniment." Booklist
This fourth book about the amigos, who made their debut in the ALA Notable Recording MANANA IGUANA, presents a witty variation of the tale of Little Red Riding Hood, with a southwestern flavor. With a sprinkling of Spanish words throughout, this clever collaboration also includes a glossary.
