(approximately)FIESTA!

In this English/Spanish counting book, Guy (Black Crow, Black Crow) takes readers shopping in a mercado (a market) as they purchase ten items typically found in a pi€ata, the basket stuffed with goodies that children crack open with a stick. Big type and minimal text on cheerful, full-bleed illustrations provide an easy, fun way to learn Spanish or English words and numbers; they also provide a gentle puzzle propelled by the repetition of the phrase ¨Qu‚ ms? (What else?) that is happily answered with the commencement of a party at book's end.
