From the publisher:
Suitable for ages 4 to 8 years, this text is available in English & Spanish. This is a delightful story from the Miskitu region on the Northeast coast of Nicaragua. It is bilingual, introducing children and adults to both Spanish and English translations on every page. The beautiful illustrations were painted by the well-known Nicaraguan artist, Augusto Silva. His use of vibrant colours and geometric lines is outstanding. Readers will delight in seeing the animals and plants of Central America. This folktale has never before been written in English. Like most folktales, it had been passed down verbally through the generations.
