Tortuga in Trouble
Illustrator: Ethan Long
Tortuga wants to take a basket of ensalada, tamales, and flan to Abuela. His friends decide to follow him-just in case the basket falls off his back (yum!). Along the way, Tortuga meets Coyote, who peeks inside the basket and then runs off, claiming he has an "appointment." But when Tortuga arrives at his grandmother's house, it is Coyote who answers, disguised as Abuela. Fortunately for Tortuga, his friends think of a way to frighten Coyote away, and everyone sits down to a tasty dinner. Glossary of Spanish words. Full-color illustrations.
