CHILDREN: My daughter's been checking these out from her school library (preschool) for months now. I've read Mummy Trouble and Lost in Spice now, too. Children love looking at the animals. My son loves the action scenes.
PARENTS: I love reading the Spanish parts! It's so fun to read over and over again (but not every night).
TEACHERS: Another vocabulary lesson, especially in Spanish. And definitely a wonderful character study! Have students create their own character sketch using a graphic organizer.
WRITERS: I'm looking forward to taking a closer look at the plotting techniques used in this one by mapping out the plot points.
