Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3—This follow-up to Mañana Iguana (2004) and Fiesta Fiasco (2007, both Holiday House) features the same four friends. When Iguana stubs her toe on a stone, she is unable to make a pan of her famous cactus-butter dulces (candies). Everyone has suggestions, but it is Culebra (snake) who finds the cure. He tells Tortuga (turtle) and Conejo (rabbit) to tie a rope to Iguana's tale and attach "un rolling pin," "dos kettles," "tres skillets," and so on, all the way up to "diez spoons." As the lizard walks around, the resulting clatter soon causes her to forget about her injury, and the friends work together to make the sweets. This slapstick tale seamlessly incorporates Spanish counting words as well as animal names. At the end, the animals are shown enjoying the treats, for which a no-cook recipe is appended, along with a glossary and pronunciations. The bright, cheerful cartoons, done in vibrant Southwestern hues, are set against white backgrounds. The characters' faces are expressive and their actions humorously exaggerated. Which will young listeners remember more, the "uno, dos, tres" or the "PLINK, PLANK, PLANG, BLATTER, BLITTER, BLING" of the kitchen utensils? Whichever it is, they will have fun with this book, and perhaps those Spanish names will stick.—Marian Drabkin, formerly at Richmond Public Library, CA

Iguana was going to make her dulces, but she stubbed her toe and was in so much pain she thought she'd have to make them another day. The pain was so bad it made her eyes bug out. Tortuga offered to rub her toes, but even that didn't help. Iguana was some upset, even when Tortuga wrapped a bandage around it. Culegra squiggled over and offered his help as a medical doctor. Tortuga scoffed at him and Conejo laughed because there was no such thing as a lowly snake who made it through medical school, but Culegra insisted he knew just what to do!

The first thing he needed was a rope which he had the others tie on Iguana's tail. He started off by having him tie "un rolling pin and dos kettles onto the rope." Other things soon followed. Tres skillets, cuatro pots . . . Iguana was yelling for them to stop, but Culebra hissssssed at them and claimed it was "Doctor's orders." Cinco pans, seis pie tins, seite cups, ocho knives, neuve forks and diez spoons were all part of the prescription. Iguana thought the whole thing was "crazy." Was all this foolishness going to help her make her lovely dulces?

This was a novel, very zany approach to learning to count to ten in Spanish. It was loads of fun to read and was much different than a simple approach to counting that I expected. The art work lends to the hilarity of the work and both children and adults will enjoy it. In the back of the book is a number glossary with a pronunciation guide and English/Spanish number and four other Spanish words used in the book. Last, but not least is Iguana's Cactus Butter Dulces recipe for you to try at home. YUM! Uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco stars for this one!

I knew I would like this book because I already had Manana Iguana in the same series. My students like them because there is some Spanish, but enough English so that they can read the book easily. My younger students (Pre-K and K) enjoy me reading it to them. I teach Elementary Spanish. The stories are cute, have a good moral and interesting and colorful illustrations.

I enjoyed this book, though not as much as "Mañana Iguana". I still love the author's style and how she incorporates Spanish into the story, but this tale seemed more contrived to me. My daughter, 6, loves it just fine though and thinks it is very funny.

Another good counting book that my students are very interest in. It is particularly of most interest because it pertains to our cultural background as well as the Panhandle area. Very cute.
